ASC supply chain tip of the day: Play 'The Price is Right'

Alpharetta, Ga.-based Surgical Information Systems Chief Nursing Officer Ann Geier, RN, shared three tips on the company's blog for ASCs looking to improve inventory management.

One of the insights she shared:

"If your ASC tends to discard a lot of supplies because they are opened but never used, draw attention to the cost of these supplies. Put pricing on storage bins. Include pricing on preference cards. Hang up posters reminding staff about the cost of those items most frequently discarded. Provide training specific to pricing. Consider emulating some of the games in 'The Price is Right' to help reinforce training in an enjoyable fashion."
