Overcoming Healthcare Supply Chain Challenges

As operational efficiency becomes a top priority for health systems, healthcare executives can’t ignore opportunities to optimize their supply chains. Outdated physician preference cards are one of the biggest supply chain management challenges facing hospitals today. The Syft Synergy preference card management solution ensures more accurate case picking helping to prevent supply waste and returns.

Economic Impact of Preference Card Optimization

According to one source, PPIs (Physician Preference Items) constitute 40-60% of a hospital’s total supply cost. Proven through extensive research and experience with customers using Syft Synergy, PPI related savings potential can range between 5-8% of costs by working with surgeons to reduce supply variation.
