ASC supply chain tip of the day: Employ a full-time materials supervisor

Mandie Shipp, BSN, RN, senior consultant of the clinical operations ambulatory care segment at Cardinal Health, shared supply chain tips with Becker's ASC Review.

An insight she shared:

"I've seen centers employ a full-time materials supervisor with experience in supply chain and a healthcare background, to manage the supply chain through data analysis and cost evaluation. They also look at benchmarking data to improve their ASC's performance and spend with centers comparable to their own to identify development opportunities and implement change."
