Whose Job Is It Anyway? The Value of Surgical Navigators in Operating Rooms (Executive level)

*Session is open to all attendees but the content is focused on the senior/executive level.

How operating room supplies are managed has historically been disjointed and disconnected from supply chain, often relying on a clinician and without direct visibility to supply chain management teams. This session, led by Dr. Jimmy Chung of Advantus Health Partners, explores the role and value of surgical navigators: supply chain associates with clinical experience who support ORs by ensuring the availability of the right supplies, accuracy of preference/procedure cards, timely communication with physicians to drive change and maintain compliance, and optimal use of the time and skills of OR clinical staff.
