Inventory management, cath lab inventory management, automated inventory management

Do you find products are stocked based on intuition rather than actual utilization based on clinical demand? Stocking by emotion versus need could be causing a significant excess of inventory for your hospital. Emotional stocking can lead to over- or under-stocking as well as waste driven by physician preferences and product variability. Ken Shastany, RN, MSN, strategic solutions consultant with Cardinal Health Inventory Management Solutions, discusses the risks of carrying too much inventory. Shastany shares how a growing number of health systems are making informed purchasing decisions using automated inventory management driven by data analytics which positions hospitals to reduce costs while supporting quality improvement initiatives.


The webinar took place July 14, 2016, but a recorded version is availbe to view.
