Press Release : Rady Children’s Expands Relationship with Syft®; Selects Syft Synergy® Platform for Real-Time Analytics and Insights in Procedural Areas
Leading San Diego pediatric medical center will leverage Syft Synergy to drive clinical integration across the supply chain
Tampa, FL – June 8, 2020 (PR Newswire) – Syft®, a leading national provider of healthcare inventory control and end-to-end supply chain cost management software and services, today announced that Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego has selected the Syft Synergy® platform to drive its clinical integration initiative across the supply chain. Rady Children’s center will use Syft Synergy to increase supply chain efficiency; building trust and collaboration between clinical and supply chain teams, reducing supply waste, and improving revenue and margins.
RCHSD is the largest children’s hospital in California, based on admissions, and the only San Diego hospital that exclusively serves pediatric care. Rady Children’s engaged Syft as its strategic supply chain partner in 2012, using Syft’s inventory management services. With the addition of the Syft Synergy platform, Rady Children’s will be able to reduce supply waste, increase inventory turns, and improve the supply pick process, overall efficiency, and clinician satisfaction.
“The better the relationship between clinicians and Supply Chain Management, the more trust there is,” said Corinne Oakland, Surgical Services Manager at Rady Children’s. “And with that trust, each party can better help the other get what it needs to reach its goals. This is especially important right now, as we’re starting to see patients who needed to postpone procedures due to COVID-19, come back. We have to work closely with Supply Chain Management to coordinate supplies for our caseload as it returns to normal levels, and we’re glad we have Syft Synergy to help us optimize that process.”
Prior to implementing Syft Synergy, Rady Children’s had a 40% return rate for products picked for surgical cases. To reduce the amount of inventory on hand and turn inventory more frequently, Rady Children’s needed a better way to track materials use, identify usage patterns, and increase accuracy and efficiency in the case picking process.
“One of our biggest strategic goals is to increase our cost-based decision-making for Surgical Services inventory, while continuing to ensure the highest quality patient outcomes,” said Dave Graul, Director of Supply Chain Management at Rady Children’s. “It’s the next step in our multi-year strategic supply chain optimization project. Because we’ve been working with Syft since 2012 and have always been impressed by how Syft’s team listens to our requests and integrates them into product updates, we knew immediately that we would engage them to help us optimize our supply chain management systems at the point-of-use. We’ve always felt like with Syft, our voice was being heard. That’s the biggest benefit to expanding our relationship with them – we know Syft will listen to suggestions from our clinical and supply chain teams and implement change for improvement.”
“Rady Children’s has been a great partner because they’re committed to excellence and have actively participated in our Voice of Customer program which has given them a platform to easily engage with our product team and communicate new product ideas. This is a win-win for all,” said Todd Plesko, Syft’s CEO. “It’s been terrific to work with them over the past eight years, and we’re delighted to be part of the next phase of their supply chain optimization initiative. Building trust and collaboration between clinical and supply chain teams is no small feat, and we’re proud that Syft Synergy will be the driver of this initiative.”###
