Healthcare supply chain professionals will gather in San Diego for the upcoming AHRMM19 Conference and Exhibition (July 28–31, 2019). Lumere, Inc.’s Chief Medical Officer, John Cherf, MD, MPH, MBA, will lead a panel of clinical and supply chain leaders during the “How to Prepare Physicians for Supply Chain Leadership” Learning Lab session and the company will debut new functionality in its solution, providing supply chain leaders with greater insight into how to better manage clinical supply spend.
Recently recognized by Healthcare Purchasing News as a P.U.R.E. (Physicians Understanding, Respecting and Engaging Supply Chain Professionals) award recipient, Dr. Cherf will draw from the panelists’ collective experience with creating highly successful relationships between new physician leaders and supply chain teams. Attendees will receive a best practices guide compiled by the panel. Join the discussion on Tuesday, July 30 at 1:00–2:00 pm PT in Room 1AB at the San Diego Conference Center.
Select panelists will join Lumere’s team of registered nurses, physicians and supply chain experts in Booth 301 during exhibit hours on July 29–30. The team will offer a hands-on demonstration of Lumere’s full software suite, including a preview of enhancements to its Category Optimization solution. This new functionality enables supply chain teams to better track strategic sourcing initiative performance; map that performance against projected clinical and financial outcomes; more accurately forecast spend over time; and ensure compliance of planned initiatives across the system.
“Many healthcare organizations face clinical spend savings targets of 3% or more and depend upon strategic sourcing initiatives to hit that goal. However, it’s common for organizations to realize far too late that the actual cost savings have missed the mark,” said Bonnie Lai, vice president, Product Management, Lumere. “This leaves administrators seeking alternate ways to manage cost, which can result in labor and wage reduction. Lumere provides the on-demand transparency needed to avoid these alternate measures.”
