Cardinal Health understands that implementing a new inventory management service involves a series of steps and decision making. We believe collaboration is critical for success. Our supply chain experts work directly with your clinical and materials staff to improve performance, efficiency, cost and quality in the fulfillment and management of suture and endomechanical products. Following is what to expect from our implementation process:

  1. Identify pain points
  2. Complete data transfer
  3. Execute walkthrough and scope of customer needs
  4. Propose current state findings and provide analysis with recommendations for Level 1 or 2
  5. Implementation and customer training for the selected level of engagement


Process overview

As we identify your pain points, we determine your needs for improvement in the current conditions of the suture/endomechanical areas. Common pain points are:

  • Inflated inventory
  • Excessive stockouts
  • Difficult to find products
  • Redundant products
  • Expired products
  • Cancelled or delayed surgeries
  • Impacted clinician satisfaction

After meeting pre-qualification standards, a Supply Chain Executive (SCE) will conduct the initial walkthrough and assessment. We then develop a solution that best meets your needs and present those findings and recommendations for the most appropriate level of service. With your approval, our analysts initiate a data transfer and physical inventory. Based on the proposed par levels, you have the option of self-management or engaging our inventory personnel to manage your suture and endomechanical products.

Whatever your choice, Cardinal Health Wound Closure Management Services helps you manage your suture and endomechanical inventory for optimal par levels, improved clinician satisfaction and product availability. We focus on improving your inventory management so that you can focus on what matters most -- taking care of the patient.
