Establishing a broad range of staffing and consultative solutions is yet another example of how Owens & Minor supports our customer's entire supply chain process. Whether a customer has a need to refine internal logistics or addressing PAR inventory management and clinical inventory management (operating room and clinical procedural areas)—we can help. For each engagement, we work with a hospital's leadership to develop a comprehensive Management Action Plan (MAP) to align with the hospital's annual strategic goals. The MAP identifies areas for process improvement within the supply chain and guides customers toward improved productivity.
Our most well-known resource management solution is PANDACSM, a comprehensive wound closure and high-value inventory management program for hospitals and surgery centers. We also offer physical inventory resources, clinical and process consulting, as well as identifying, training, and management of supply chain roles operating within the hospital. Services can be short-term, such as interim management, or long-term, such as position outsourcing.
Good fiscal management includes having an accurate value of all on-hand inventories. Not having an accurate picture can lead to tax and/or financial implications, misallocation of inventory, and inconsistent or incorrect units. Hospitals are required to complete periodic audits of their inventory; and, performing an inventory valuation can be costly, time-consuming, and labor-intensive.
Owens & Minor has chosen to partner with Data Solutions Corporation, an industry-leading company, to provide an alternative for managing year-end physical inventory counts with resources and analytical tools. These outsourced inventory valuation services provide experts and technology to conduct periodic counts on baseline inventory and all medical/surgical/pharma/lab products, isolating expired products, and providing reports within an average 72 hour turnaround.
