Logi-D Webinar : Applying Industrialization to the Hospital Supply Chain – January 23, 2013
January 23, 2013. This case study presentation describes how one hospital successfully implemented best practices and proven automation technologies adapted from the industrial sector to streamline supply chain processes in its general and specialized wards. Seeking to release its clinical staff from supply-related activities, reduce its inventory expenses and waste, and better capture usage data at the point of use, it implemented an automated system that puts proven supply chain management principles into action by aligning information and material flows. The integration of industrial supply chain practices has generated impressive productivity and inventory-related gains, which are reflected in the hospital’s bottom line.
