ASC supply chain tip of the day: Examine GPOs


Neil Olderman, partner at law firm Drinker Biddle & Reath and president of consulting firm Innovative Health Strategies, said in the next 10 years ASCs can expect to see device maker role changes in operating suites, device makers treating ASCs as clients and for supply chain to shift its focus toward being accountable for patient outcomes.

A supply chain tip he shared with Becker's ASC Review:

"While obtaining a low price for products and services will always be a key component of a GPO's service to its members, we believe GPOs will try to differentiate themselves from each other, strengthen their retention of existing members, and take business from other GPOs by using consulting offerings to leverage the vast amount of real-time data they have available."
