ASC supply chain tip of the day: Consider Amazon

Amazon has the potential to become a player in the ASC supply chain market, according to Neil Olderman, partner at law firm Drinker Biddle & Reath, and president of Drinker Biddle & Reath's consulting firm, Innovative Health Strategies.

Mr. Olderman shared supply chain insights with Becker's ASC Review:

"We think that over the next three years, Amazon will emerge with better technology to link to the ASC’s supply chain management systems to automate better the use of a formulary or restrictive item master index. There will also be better and more frequent delivery capabilities over time. Amazon has one credo within its DNA, and that is, 'How can we improve the experience for the customer and make it less costly?' This approach, put to proper use in the ASC space, will be attractive to ASCs."
