In this episode


The Increasing Complexity of Healthcare Value Analysis Teams: For healthcare value analysis teams, the decision-making process has become more complex. Along with cost and quality, factors such as sustainability, environmental impact and resiliency are now important considerations when evaluating products and selecting suppliers.  

Involving Clinicians in the Process: Physicians and other clinicians need to play a role in the value analysis process. By educating them about your diversity and sustainability initiatives, you can gain much-needed buy-in and support. Doing so will help ensure that the products and suppliers you select align with the values and goals of your health system. 

Develop New Decision-Making Skills: Balancing cost, quality, environmental impact and diversity requires value analysis leaders to develop a new set of skills. While this can feel overwhelming, every one of these factors must be weighed carefully in relation to each other to ensure that you are making smart, informed decisions.
