Health care supply chain management represents an essential consideration for companies looking to reduce waste and maximize revenue. Companies often begin by taking an in-depth look at their costs, focusing on hidden costs such as management and movement of supplies and inventory holding. In the same vein, health care organizations must identify sources of financial waste and rectify them as quickly as possible. A common way to reduce financial waste is to standardize inventories available to clinicians, avoiding potentially costly preference items from each physician.

Outside of reducing financial waste, inventory management is a key component of supply chain management. Thanks to technological advances, health care organizations can use comprehensive tracking systems to understand how supplies flow in and out of their inventory. Using this data, companies can make informed purchasing decisions and reduce inefficiencies due to poor inventory management.
