Track: Clinical Improvement/Innovation
Clinical Improvement/Innovation Poster Session (Posters #184-#193)
Description: Supply Chain in healthcare is evolving; healthcare itself has become significantly more complex and data intensive. Supply Chain successfully supported Mayo Clinic’s transformational change to implement one Electronic Health Record (EHR), one Enterprise Resource Plan (ERP) and one inventory management system focusing on clinical practice convergence and integration of business processes. Supply Chain successfully managed the implement one inventory management system across 22 hospitals in multiple states. The inventory management system was implemented concurrently in all Surgical, Cardiology, GI and Interventional Radiology procedural units across the enterprise. The implementation was completed over three years in four phases and included multiple hospitals with each phase. The project team included 65 full time members, 800 end-users, and along with the 1000’s who were impacted indirectly by this implementation. The implementation of the EHR, ERP, and inventory systems allowed the Mayo Clinic to replace109 electronic systems, which included 9 manual supply management systems. Supply Chain aligned efforts with the clinical teams across the enterprise to review and build 36,400 preference cards in the new EHR through the interface with the ERP. The outcome from this implementation included: greater controls on inventory levels, contract compliance, scanning of supplies into EHR, standardized implant tracking and improved revenue controls. The interfaces between the systems allow end-users to quickly view inventory levels and case costs. The surgical departments are now able to see case cost across the enterprise, supporting Mayo Clinics practice convergence efforts. Supply Chain continues to support the system and identify opportunities to empower practice standardization efforts.
