Supply Chain Management
Advantage’s Surgical Services Supply Chain Management implements the art and science of honoring physicians’ preferences while ensuring that your facility is maximizing cost savings. Cost savings are vital to an organization for quality commodity items, as well as for stocking critical items at a rate that matches usage, delivery times, and expiration dates.
Surgical Service Line Optimization
A team is handpicked for the specific instrumentation service that is deemed most concerning to the department. The team leader will coordinate with surgical service leaders, O.R. board schedulers and vendors to ensure the Advantage processing team delivers clean, sterile, and complete trays to the end-user. The processing team will assemble and perform defined quality checks of inspection for each tray/item requested.
