New Software Opens up a Whole New World of Supply Chain Savings Previously Thought Impossible
Utilizer™ Dashboard version 3.2 just released! Finally, there is a user friendly software that will enable healthcare organizations to quickly identify their supply utilization misalignments from the 30,000 foot level, right down to the ground level. This simple, effective and affordable Utilizer™ Dashboard will open up a whole new world of supply chain savings most think is impossible.
Skippack, Pa (SVAH) November 14, 2008 – Healthcare managers won’t be at all surprised to hear that the healthcare industry is rife with utilization misspends and misalignments. The root of the problem, according to expert research, is that despite their best efforts, healthcare managers have yet to uncover where their true utilization savings are buried.
Robert T. Yokl, President of Strategic Value Analysis® in Healthcare (SVAH) and a recognized supply chain management expert, recalls talking recently to a healthcare supply chain manager, who told Yokl that he, employing a spend manager, an analytics manager and clinical manager tools, was unable to locate their organization’s utilization misalignments. The job was not impossible, though, as SVAH’s was able to find nearly $4.2 million dollars in utilization misalignments for this organization.
“This very skilled and highly qualified supply chain manager was unable to pinpoint his savings opportunities, but this failure was in no way related to the managers’ skills or qualifications,” Yokl says. “He simply did not have the right tool to accurately find the savings that consistently remain buried in his supply chain data.”
Yokl’s solution is simple: Use the right tools for the job. Over the last eight years, SVAH has conducted hundreds of utilization benchmarking studies for hospitals, systems and IDNs by employing a proprietary utilization dashboard, which has identified close to a half a billion dollars in utilization misalignments for SVAH clients. Yokl says his company’s Utilizer™ Dashboard is the precision tool that hospitals and healthcare institutions really need. “The bottom line is that healthcare organizations can’t do it alone; it’s an impossible task to ask supply chain managers to find thousands, and even millions in supply chain savings using old-school strategies, tools and techniques.”
With this said, SVAH has just recently upgraded its Utilizer™ Dashboard to version 3.2 which now includes an easy to use contract management module that takes the hassle out of managing and controlling the hundreds (maybe even thousands) of contracts healthcare organizations must manage, archive and bid/negotiate almost on a daily basis.
The Utilizer™ Dashboard is available as a subscription service on a fixed monthly fee basis. It identifies all potential utilization savings, and subscribers also receive unlimited phone and e-mail coaching to assist them in translating, strategizing and implementing the savings uncovered with their Utilizer™ Dashboard. Yokl says one of the best features of the dashboard is that “SVAH does all of the heavy lifting and our clients get all of the savings.”
