Texas hospital system reduces supply costsRepresentatives from Methodist Health System in Dallas recently reported on the progress that has been made in cutting costs by reevaluating supply expenditures.

Methodist Health System, which often places at the top of the U.S. rankings in quality and clinical outcomes, achieved major savings with centralized purchasing operations, and it aims to further reduce its supply costs in the future, according to Healthcare Finance News.

Addressing a conference recently, Peggy Shewmaker, the health system's supply chain purchasing director, said that Methodist saved $7 million on 133 projects by conducting aggressive value analysis and applying system-wide metrics, HFN reported.

A strategy conducted by Methodist called "Hold the Gain" improved internal communication while providing greater accountability from vendors, the source stated.

A new supply chain optimization ecommerce tool being offered by Prodigo Solutions could help reduce the cost of hospital products in the future. The platform was recently launched and aims to lower costs and improve efficiency in the healthcare supply chain, according to a separate article in Healthcare Finance News.
