- Our Story
The complexity of healthcare today demands a well defined formulary to facilitate quality care, control medical supply costs and monitor clinical compliance and outcomes. These ever changing financial, regulatory and clinical challenges demand a well organized purchasing department. New products and equipment are entering the market each day making the challenge even greater.
Does your organization maintain a specific product formulary, supported by continued education, data management and annual review? Standardizing products and equipment combined with purchasing guidelines and continued education facilitates positive outcomes for your residents, staff and entire organization.
Do any of the following scenarios apply to your organization?
Often budgets are managed simply by focusing primarily on pricing. Consider a new approach with your vendor and move toward a restructured supply chain management system that includes a comprehensive formulary to facilitate quality care and positive outcomes for your entire organization.
