ASC supply chain tip of the day: Monitor price

Beverly Bryant, MSN, RN, administrator and director of Yuma (Ariz.) Endoscopy Center, shared supply chain insights with Becker's ASC Review.

One of the insights she shared:

"We have a Dry Erase supply board [where] anyone (even our cleaning crew) can write what supplies are running low or out. This triggers the supply technician to track a previous order or order the item immediately. She also indicates on the board when the item is due to arrive, or if it's backordered. This helps with catching things in enough time to order them without having to pay for overnight charges. I also am constantly reviewing the supply invoices to monitor price increases."
