Sunlight Is the Best Disinfectant: Illuminating Dark Data to Fully Optimize Hospital Supply Chains

Fully illuminating the entire supply chain journey, from “Dock to Doc,” enables hospitals and health systems to leverage new insights to assess market, cost, and quality performance. Yet many organizations are struggling to analyze their supply chain data and apply it effectively. This session will explore the role of “hidden data"" and “dark data” in preventing the accurate tracking of supply usage, costs, and performance, as well as the consequences, which include unnecessary waste, higher healthcare spending, and less affordable care overall. Additionally, we'll also explore how healthcare organizations can fully illuminate and harness dark and hidden data to obtain stronger insights and benchmarks, gain full visibility into the product life cycle within their organizations, and create more efficient, quality-enhancing processes.
