Our Supply Chain Strategy experts help to control inventory, increase efficiency, reduce cost and eliminate stress

Supply Chain Strategy

Our consulting approach offers strategic planning, project management and execution that improves the efficiency of any healthcare supply chain.

Achieving equilibrium in your inventory levels is more difficult than ever.

New products throw off capacity planning. Changes that came with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) force inventory managers to find new ways to lower costs – while understandably cautious OR supply managers order higher quantities than necessary… just in case. It’s no surprise that even the most sophisticated healthcare systems have complex and unpredictable supply chain challenges. Cardinal Health provides strategic planning and execution for any size organization, from standalone surgery centers to large regional networks, that addresses critical supply chain challenges.

Comprehensive consulting and project management services

We help healthcare providers understand and control inventory and logistics so they run more efficiently, cost less and eliminate stress on staff and patients alike. Our supply chain experts assess performance at every phase of your supply chain workflow. Then we provide strategies to drive out waste, speed up delivery and create better performance metrics. Our team provides future-state roadmaps and project management resources to help you make it real.

Custom, turnkey solutions

A great strategy, of course, is only as good as its execution. Our comprehensive approach provides more than a roadmap for change – our experienced project managers move you from strategy to reality. Our solutions are tailored to your specific need, from a single inventory location to an entire enterprise. The result is an optimized supply chain that helps you manage the total cost of care.

Core competencies:

  • Supply Chain Strategy and Design
  • Inventory Optimization
  • Logistics Solutions
  • And much more!

Whether your bold idea is to improve supply chain operations, increase efficiency, reduce costs – or all three – we’re here to help you bring it to life. Contact us for more information.
