“It’s on backorder.” How many times have you heard that answer when you asked why a needed supply wasn’t on the shelf? Wouldn’t it be better if your team knew ahead of time that items weren’t available, and they knew what steps were already being taken to resolve the issue? In today’s interview with Suzi Collins, Market Director of Supply Chain at Steward Healthcare, we’re going to be talking about the relationship between the Operating Room and Supply Chain and how important proper communication is between the two departments. How do we get the supplies that we need? How much lead time does Supply Chain need in order to have a product available? Why does it seem like Supply Chain says NO every time you ask for something? It’s not because they don’t like you! Tune in to this episode to find out!
