ASSESSMENT AND OPTIMIZATION PLANNING FOR REGIONAL SURGICAL SUPPLY CHAIN
We have improved accessibility, employees' and physicians' engagement, quality of care, and operating margins in many organizations.
Below is a case study of a regional surgical supply chain.
Client and Facilities
Eight different Perioperative Centers are operating under three distinct organizations.
The hospitals in scope have a combined spend in the surgical supply chain of over $53M to perform over 94,000 cases annually in 74 operating rooms. The client, a shared services organization, was investigating on behalf of its members means to optimize its logistics, procurement, and operation staffing models.
OPEXC was engaged to assess and develop operational strategies over 8-months period. The assessment incorporated analysis of the process, people, and technology used on every site. The approved recommendations were developed into a detailed implementation roadmap and a business case for funding. OPEXC developed the implementation governance and working teams structure.
The Government approved the business case funding request, and member hospitals commenced implementation based on the roadmap provided. Once the strategy is fully deployed, the organizations in scope will reduce cost by 10% while improving the quality of surgical services offered.
Cost Reduction – $5M annually and $7M one-time cost avoidance
Revenue Optimization – $7M over a 3-year period
