Planning for supply chain shortages can help ASCs prepare their teams quickly and efficiently when a disruption occurs, according to Cheryl Poplaski, Vizient's senior director of supply chain operations.

She shared the following supply chain tip with Becker's ASC Review:

"Communicate, communicate and communicate! When suppliers regulate product distribution by allocation amounts, check your data and review with your sales rep to ensure the allotment is sufficient to cover actual usage."
