Since 2013, Mount Sinai Health System has grown rapidly through M&A activity. As a result, we’ve had multiple hospitals with their own supply chain and accounts payable (AP) departments each using disparate technologies, including different enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and item masters.
We’ve asked ourselves – Is it good to have all of this technology or not? And, if so, how do we make it work for us so we can better care for our patients?
Here are some of the steps we are taking to centralize processes, systems and data.
Moving forward, we are looking at issues on the invoicing side and trying to determine how we can work outside of the four walls of supply chain with AP so our invoices are cleaner. How do we make an impact from start to finish – from req to check? And beyond that, how do we improve supply chain processes outside of the acute care setting to support our healthcare organization’s population health strategy?
In healthcare, you can’t stay stagnant. Everything is moving so fast and you have to look ahead. We are building a platform with flexibility that will allow us to grow and meet the future demands on our industry.
