Where Supply Chain Analytics Can Go Wrong: 3 Qs with BroadJump’s Lauren Davis

Lauren Davis, product director of medical-surgical solutions at BroadJump, an expense management company, recently spoke with Becker’s Hospital Review about the key opportunities for healthcare supply chain teams, emerging technologies in the supply chain space and advice to healthcare leaders on reining in costs.

She shared the following on the biggest opportunity for healthcare supply chain teams with Becker’s Hospital Review’s Alia Paavola:

“In recent years, the role of the healthcare supply chain has vastly expanded. As a result, supply chain teams have the opportunity to take on more of a strategic position within their organization by focusing on process improvement and decision support. But many supply chain leaders find that their days are dictated by emergency situations and savings initiatives by contract expiration. So, the question becomes, how can we put ourselves in the driver’s seat? Enlisting the right partners within your healthcare system and externally will help reduce preventable errors, eliminate manual processes, and ultimately free-up time to effectively manage expenses, instead of them managing you.”
