Bill-only implant orders have long been difficult for health systems to manage for many reasons. Implant procedures are complex because implants come in as many shapes and sizes as patients do, but manual procurement processes are adding unnecessary difficulty. Currently, managing implants is a 15-step process that is time-consuming and error-prone for everyone involved, and it continues long after the patient has walked out the door. Health systems and their suppliers are both looking for ways to simplify implant orders. In this session, hear from a panel of providers who have tackled this challenge head-on, with the correctly-sized screws, pins and rods.
