Only opening or using supplies as you need them can help ASCs save money on supply chain according to Sam Goldberger, MD, who shared supply chain insights with Eye Care Leaders.
Dr. Goldberger shared the following tip:
“There is often a ‘knee-jerk’ response of opening up all supplies ahead of a case. But even the basic supplies used in a procedure can differ depending on the case’s particulars. Whenever possible, try opening supplies only when they’re needed. Enlisting cooperating of your surgeons and clinical staff could really minimize your expenses."
