Health Systems

Take control of your non-acute care continuum.

The landscape of patient care is rapidly shifting outside of the traditional hospital setting. 95% of patient visits are now taking place outside of the hospital. This new way of receiving care is also driving the complexity of how clinicians deliver treatment. This change requires a new way of managing your supply chain throughout your entire health system. Managing the broad spectrum of care settings requires solutions developed for the unique requirements of each facility, from the physician office to the patient’s home.

We’ve heard from health systems customers that non-acute averages 2% of product spend, yet drives 30% of headaches.

New challenges require a different approach to managing your supply chain, including:

  • Integrating new patient care sites into your system
  • Extending a standardized infrastructure including products and programs across your facilities
  • Preventing patients from being readmitted to the hospital and encouraging patient care compliance with their post-acute care instructions
  • Addressing regulatory challenges of having multiple product and pharmaceutical supply chains
  • Maintaining clinician and patient satisfaction across your non-acute care sites

The non-acute continuum: Complicated. Fragmented. And full of opportunity.

Take Control of Your Non-Acute Care Continuum

We help to cut through the complexity and bridge potential gaps through our expertise in distribution. In order to capitalize upon health system’s hidden opportunities, it is important that health systems take these four pillars into account in building a strong, future-forward continuum of care.

1 | Supply Chain Operations
Operate an integrated supply chain that reduces operation expenses, eliminates waste and improves productivity across hundreds of locations and many care settings.

2 | Financial Performance
Drive down costs while also focusing on service levels, quality of care and patient satisfaction.

3 | Clinical Infrastructure
Build a system of facilities and capabilities designed to expand patient access and advance the quality of care.

4 | Leading Change
Overcome organizational inertia by aligning stakeholders, resources and planning processes to successfully execute initiatives.
