ASC supply chain tip of the day: Use supply chain consignment

Taking advantage of consignment can help ASCs save supply chain costs, Medline reported in Outpatient Outcomes magazine.

Medline shared the following insight on consignment:

"Consignment ordering is flexible. ASCs can stock supplies for everyday use, as well as for emergency cases, which allow for cost savings as the center is billed only for what is used. Through using consignment, inventory management is handled by the supplier rather than the ASC, saving staff time."
