Achieving Cost-Savings and Gaining Efficiencies through Supply Chain Contract Management Standardization

With supply costs predicted to exceed labor costs by 2020, Intermountain Healthcare realized that it was time to bring a strategic focus to its supply chain management. The Salt Lake City-headquartered health system, comprised of 24 hospitals across multiple states, asked its Kem C. Gardner Supply Chain Center to examine the current procurement process and determine which system-wide procurement platform would drive standardization; thus, enhancing cost-savings, quality management and overall efficiencies.
