Episode #9: The Hidden Value of Your Supply Chain


While almost eighty percent of items used by a hospital cost less than $20 each, thousands of dollars are spent capturing consumption of those items.  Have you untapped the hidden value in your supply chain?  In this episode we will talk with three healthcare supply chain thought leaders about how healthcare organizations can optimize their supply chain and move it from a cost center to a revenue generator.  We talk with Drex DeFord & Charles Hodge about supply chain lessons learned at Seattle Childrens Hospital.  We hear about supply chain market trends from Karen Conway, Executive Director-Industry Relations at GHX.
