The importance of supply chain, clinicians and distributors working together has grown as care continues to shift outside of the hospital. Health system supply chain leaders are increasingly tasked with procurement and inventory management – but they don’t have to do this work all on their own. This case study with Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG) demonstrates how diverse stakeholders can work together to improve supply chain performance.

Here are some highlights of how teaming up with McKesson helped ease the burden on LVPG’s supply chain leaders:

  • Simplified procurement by standardizing to a single distributor
  • Made ordering easier from a standardized formulary of products
  • Moved to molecular lab testing for a point-of-care approach
