ASC supply chain tip of the day: Play 'guess which item's more expensive'


Educating ASC staff on supply chain best practices can be fun, according to Quorum Purchasing Advantage Vice President Tony Bramer.

Mr. Bramer shared the following tip with Becker's ASC Review:

"The first thing I encourage ASC supply people to do is to help the physicians understand [the cost of products] by either putting up information in the physicians' lounge or other areas where physicians tend to wait — to help them understand the actual costs of the choices they're making," Mr. Bramer said. "That can be done by a little display table. I've seen some people do it through various games and contests [like], 'Guess which item's more expensive.'"
