Discovery and goal setting
Our supply chain experts work with hospital staff to understand their short and long term goals. These goals provide a roadmap to ensure the program qualifies to meet the needs of the hospital and helps determine the precise measurements needed to remedy supply chain inefficiencies.
Analysis and reporting
Demand data from each point of care within the hospital drives the medical/surgical supply chain. ValueLink® Par Optimization analysis begins with this demand data. Standard reports arm each hospital with the tools needed to establish rationale for their inventory stocking levels and reorder process, plus the labor to support these functions.
Implementation and tracking
With a hands-on inventory management methodology, collaborative approach to training and report review with stakeholders, Cardinal Health not only helps customers control their newly improved supply chain, but offers their expertise to teach inventory control practices. Results are measured to ensure the hospital’s goals are being met.
