With quality of care and cost efficiency at the top of your mind, there is no room in your hospital for waste from high-value supplies. However, managing your critical supplies in the cath lab can be a challenge. How can you get the supply waste in your facility under control? Watch this short video to learn how an automated inventory management solution could help you reduce the waste in your hospital while improving your total cost of care.
With bundled payments putting increased pressure on hospitals to manage supply costs while providing quality patient care, there is no room in your cath lab for high-value medical device waste. An automated inventory management solution could help you find and reduce the waste hiding in your supply chain while helping to improve your total cost of care. Visit cardinalhealth.com/CIMS.
Pacemakers, stents and bandages — keeping tracking of what is on hand and accurately capturing charges can be a challenge. What if you could track, manage and analyze your cath lab inventory – low cost to high value – to reveal powerful business intelligence and shine a light on new savings and revenue capture?
