Supply Chain Management: Technology Enables Performance Maximization
Eagan, MN – May 18, 2015 – Jump Technologies, Inc., an innovative software company that provides cloud-based mobile solutions for inventory management in hospitals, today announced sponsorship of a webinar for healthcare system supply chain leaders that will feature Jamie Kowalski, healthcare consultant, researcher, thought-leader and CEO of Jamie C. Kowalski Consulting, LLC, as the faculty/presenter.
With the total annual spending on all consumable supplies used by a hospital or health system making up approximately 18-23% of the operating budget and the total annual supply chain expense accounting for about 50% of the operating budget, taking smart steps to address supply chain problems has never been more important. At the same time, hospital supply chain leaders are reliant upon systems such as their Enterprise Resource Planning and Electronic Health Record, and other foundational technology tools, generally not designed to support all the needs of achieving optimal performance in supply chain management.
This one-hour webinar will help participants define a clear picture of their organization’s entire supply chain, determine what strategies, processes and functions should be part of their approach, and understand what essential add-on technology can improve opportunities to drive the best results.
This session will enable participants to:
- Create a function/activity based definition of their hospital’s system supply chain
- Recognize some of the gaps in the supply chain that can be focused on and filled
- Consider which supply chain transactions and tasks the current technology tools are effectively handling, versus those for which deeper and different types of analyses would provide more value
- Identify ways to improve supply chain management performance, including which will have the greatest impact on expense reduction
“With the right focus on current gaps and new technology, there is great progress that can be made,” said Jamie Kowalski. “I’m looking forward to this session, which will help identify challenges that can be tackled with the greatest impact on results.”
“Jump Technologies is continually seeking ways to improve supply chain management for hospitals and healthcare systems,” said John Freund, CEO, Jump Technologies, Inc. “By teaming with Jamie Kowalski, we’re pleased to offer supply chain leaders new ideas to help improve their supply chain processes and drive greater automation and accuracy in their systems.”
This one-hour webinar will be held Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at 12:30 PM ET, and is offered to healthcare supply chain leaders at no charge. To register, participants can use this link: Webinar Registration.
