'Don't re-invent the wheel': A message for ASC supply chain leaders

Supply chain success shouldn't look much different in ASCs than it does in hospital operating rooms, according to Tyler Ross, director of supply chain operations at Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Novant Health.

Mr. Ross shared the following insight on LinkedIn:

"We need to stop overlooking and under-appreciating the clinical complexity of ASCs.

"With increasing reimbursement incentives for performing surgeries in outpatient locations, non-acute supply chain leaders need to keep this in mind. Ensure your ASCs are staffed with supply chain team members to manage this. It's worth getting right, and the demand for outpatient cases is only going up. Rapidly.

"Don't re-invent the wheel, just re-tread the tires."
