The mission of every healthcare institution is to give quality care to their patients. Clinicians play a critical role in delivering patient care from admission to discharge. However, today’s clinician is highly over-utilized and pulled in many different directions. The average nurse spends an inordinate amount of time on tasks that divert the clinician from their primary responsibility: the patient. The country’s growing shortage of nurses makes them a scarce and costly commodity.
Hospitals face two growing cost each day: labor and inventory. Clinicians directly impact both in various ways; research has shown that nurses can spend as much as 40% of their time tending to supply-chain activities—resulting in time diverted from patient care, and an inadequate supply-chain model. Clinicians cannot be expected to function as Supply-Chain Experts. Clinicians strive to deliver the highest quality of service to those in their care with little else as a primary concern. Unfortunately, at times the financial needs of the hospital are in many cases not aligned with the clinicians’ patient-care goals. Because inventory costs are on average 24% of most hospitals’ expenses, these institutions make management of the supply-chain process their operational imperative. Thus, clinicians are often forced to sacrifice patient-care for the financial priorities of their hospitals.
