Best ASC supply chain practices

By: Paula DeJohn

Medical-surgical supplies are essential to the delivery of health care. That is why even small hospitals usually have a staff member who is in charge of ordering, buying, stocking, and distributing the thousands of supplies and who knows how to manage vendors and negotiate contracts. Larger hospitals have high-level executives who manage trained professionals running multi-million-dollar supply chain operations.
