Collaborating to Achieve Breakthroughs in Supply Chain Savings and Patient Care Quality

From Executive Healthcare: “Collaboration is a key to success in most improvement efforts, and healthcare is no different. Through the sharing of information and best practices and learning from each other, we have found we can accelerate the rate of improvement for the members of our healthcare alliance. By working together to share clinical knowledge, improve productivity and reduce the cost of supplies, we have delivered billions of dollars in validated savings to our member hospitals. In the past three years alone, our member hospitals have validated more than $2.5 billion in savings through their participation in Premier.”

“Premier’s Collaborative Breakthrough Series (BTS) is just one of the programs Premier offers to its members. The series allows hospitals to quickly identify and implement improvements in clinical supply chain management that result in significant cost reductions. Since hospitals in the Premier alliance launched the BTS seven years ago, more than 230 teams have taken part, capturing cumulative savings of more than $170 million. Through these efforts, participating hospitals generate the savings to reinvest in their communities to improve healthcare.” Collaborating to Achieve Breakthroughs in Supply Chain Savings and Patient Care Quality
