ASC supply chain tip of the day: Focus on physician preference item costs

Ann Castro, BroadJump's vice president of non-acute sales, weighed in on the top supply chain opportunities and challenges for ASCs.

Ms. Castro shared the following tip with Becker's ASC Review:

"For orthopedics, [planned orthopedic surgery costs] are the biggest area for physician preference items. Typically, for those centers, their supply chain spend is allocated at a 60 percent rate. So orthopedic practices spend a majority of their overall supply chain budget on physician preference items. With so many procedures moving to an outpatient setting, I'm finding the dynamics of the volume are really shifting within our market. The time is right to leverage market share and volume and begin to focus on physician preference items."
