Stephanie Martin, vice president of operations and clinical services for Westchester, Ill.-based ASC management company Regent Surgical Health, shared supply chain tips on Regent's blog.

A tip she shared:

"Ordering supplies based on usage during a certain amount of time is more efficient than the traditional practice of ordering to fill capacity or hoarding supplies 'just in case.' ASCs should seek out and eliminate hidden costs within clinical processes, which may have become standardized over time. Careful evaluation can save thousands of dollars being spent inefficiently."
