Supply Chain Tip of the Week: 5 ways to find real savings in report data

Surgery centers can uncover new ways to save money while still supporting quality patient outcomes.

Here are 5 ways to leverage the data you currently have in order to find hidden efficiencies:

  1. Check your reimbursements by procedure to help identify codes that are losing money. 
  2. Reveal the highest-cost supplies and attempt to standardize these products and decrease SKU count in order to save money. 
  3. Compare physician performance to identify any best practices that might benefit your entire physician group. 
  4. Improve patient throughput by identifying reports that capture the amount of time patients spend in your surgery center, from sign-in to discharge. 
  5. Find new billing opportunities with implants by using EHR or PM system data to match implant procedures with actual billing.
