Making the Supply Chain Your Competitive Advantage in an Era of Bundled Payments and Population Health

Speaker: Andy Perry

With the onset of Medicare’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement, the continued proliferation of private payment bundles, and greater assumption of performance-based risk in general, hospitals have a unique challenge and opportunity—through strategic supply chain management—for competitive advantage in the marketplace. Top performing organizations are integrating physician leadership and robust information resources to engineer cost out of care. Laggards are not. This presentation will utilize Pearlson and Saunders’s Information Systems Strategy Triangle1 as an effective method for assessing and remedying disagreement between business strategy, people strategy, and information strategy. This presentation will walk through the ghosts of healthcare past—using The Information System Strategy Triangle—to uncover vestiges of cost-based reimbursement, outsourced contracting, and transactional management that plague and inhibit an organization’s competitiveness and growth. Participants will examine Medicare market and cost report insights to quantify the impact that strategic supply chain management has on an organization and evaluate their current state.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify traditional supply chain practices that inhibit an organization’s competitiveness and growth.
  • Discuss the Information System Strategy Triangle to evaluate business, people, and information strategy.
  • Utilize Medicare and cost report data to quantify impact of strategic sourcing on organization.

Take Away:
A schema through which to position the supply chain organization for bundled payments and risk based contracting.
