Amerinet and NML Collaborate with Intermountain Healthcare on Integrated Supply Chain Center
Date:8/19/2013

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 19, 2013

Amerinet Inc, a leading national healthcare solutions organization, collaborated with member Intermountain Healthcare and supply chain consultants National Medical Logistics (http://www.natmedlog.com) to conceptualize, design and build, and implement the new Kem C. Gardner Supply Chain Center. This state-of-the-art consolidated logistics complex houses all supply chain sourcing, purchasing, warehouse, transportation and ancillary services operations for the system.

“Developing a long-term strategic plan first requires an understanding of what improvement opportunities exist,” explained AVP of materials management for Intermountain Healthcare, Richard Beach. “There were several key areas we wanted to address in our supply chain, from improved service and cost/value, to the creation of a safety net that would protect the Intermountain Healthcare family from realistic threats related to shortages, public health emergencies and other disasters. This tall order required more than a series of isolated fixes."

NML specializes in healthcare supply chain consulting and implementation solutions that improve efficiency, increase customer satisfaction and reduce costs – all from a client-focused unbiased perspective. With more than 50 years of combined hands-on senior-level medical distribution experience, Intermountain Healthcare felt confident NML could provide the initial evaluations needed to strategically weigh their supply chain management options.

The engagement with NML advanced beyond the business-case phase, identifying and analyzing considerations such as value-stream opportunities, capital investment projections, operating cost impact, physical facility requirements and ancillary service levels to the actual implementation of the plan. During the work phase, the statement of work remained very fluid and deliverables were adapted as needed.

Amerinet was also an invaluable collaborative member of the Intermountain Healthcare support team. Contracts for the desired SKUs were diligently identified; then Amerinet went line-by-line to make sure the appropriate addendums were in place to reconfigure logistical requirements such as delivery terms, pallet size and packaging. More importantly, they also worked alongside Intermountain Healthcare and NML, helping to strategically develop sourcing strategy by identifying opportunities, value streams and bringing key suppliers onboard.

“The Kem C. Gardner Supply Chain Center is improving the delivery of quality healthcare to each and every one of our patients,” said Beach. “Clinical staff now spends more time with patients and less on purchasing-related administrative tasks.” Efficiency, delivery times, standardization and inventory control also contribute.

In addition, NML and Amerinet have now formed a new partnership that will provide all members the same leading consulting services used by Intermountain Healthcare in creation of the center – at a competitive contract price.
