Clinical Links in the Supply Chain: The Rising Impact of Nurses on Strategic Sourcing Initiatives

Value analysis committees have begun to focus on form and function for the front lines versus taking a traditional supplier-oriented approach with their strategic sourcing initiatives.  Having clinical representation has been a key component to the success of these initiatives and the industry has seen more and more nurses becoming involved in supply chain. On this episode of the Power Supply podcast, Tracey Chadwell, BSN, RN, CVAHP, HACP Senior Director of Advisory Solutions at Intalere joins us to talk about her path from nursing into supply chain and the benefits that clinical integration has in aligning outcomes and supply chain strategies. Tune in to hear tips on how to factor in physician preferences, vendor rep relationships, and product experience for success across your health system. Pull up a chair and plug in to Power Supply!
