Hospital Supply Chain Management
At AmerisourceBergen Drug Corporation, our clinically integrated supply chain solution begins by examining your current supply chain — then recommending a customized model using the processes and technologies that have made us one of the most efficient pharmaceutical suppliers in the world. In most cases, health systems that work with us to re-engineer their supply chain processes realize a 3:1 ROI.
We begin with an end-to-end assessment of your supply chain, benchmarked against industry operating and performance metrics. This assessment can cover your entire supply chain, from
planning and sourcing through distribution and delivery of all supplies and products, including pharmaceuticals, medical-surgical, diagnostic, lab equipment, and office products. Or, it can target a specific area of the supply chain, such as sourcing, procurement, or inventory and warehouse management.
Based on that assessment, we’ll help you create a strategic business plan that lays out the technologies, capabilities, workflows, and skills required to achieve those targets. This detailed work plan, with cost- and time-saving recommendations, can cover everything from strategic sourcing and inventory management to the consolidation of your supply chain distribution.
- Integrated Services Center (ISC) One management model we’ll help you consider, and potentially implement, is ISC. This self-distribution model centralizes the distribution services and supply spend for all entities within your health system in one organization that handles these processes internally or outsources them, with the potential to increase operating margins, including med/surg.
Through our supply spend assessment, we’ll help you achieve lower pricing on the supplies your organization uses while improving clinical outcomes through consistent use of high quality, safe products from certified suppliers. Most hospitals can realize a reduction in expenses for supplies.
