Geisinger saves millions in medical dollars through better supply management
Date:6/24/2008

small.

By maximizing contracts, Geisinger recovered $2 million in manufacturers' rebates last year. The team also cut linen costs at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center by $.31 per patient per day after consulting nurses at the Wilkes-Barre hospital.

Beyond improving Geisinger's bottom line, there's also the potential to improve patient safety.

When supplies or medications are recalled, Geisinger notifies its departments about product location, and can quickly pull items. The system is also working with vendors and suppliers on consistent standards to better track products.

"It's not any one thing," Templeton said. "It's about looking at our entire operation and understanding what we really need."
