Business reviews have been a mechanism for conversations with providers and suppliers to identify day to day business needs and trends.  Mayo Clinic realized these reviews were only getting them so far with their supplier relationships.  In an effort to create deeper partnerships with solution-based outcomes, Mayo developed a Supplier Scorecard to measure, create and communicate next steps for taking the relationships to the next level.   The scorecard is used in each major contracting category to enhance supplier relationships by addressing quality, efficiencies, price competitiveness, service and business acumen.  In this session, Mayo Clinic will discuss the supplier selection process, the scoring criteria, the process to collect data, and the value this information provides to the chosen suppliers.
 
Learning Objectives:
  1. Develop an effective approach to enhancing supplier relationships within your facilities, including stakeholders and all areas of supply chain.
  2. Identify a process for gathering, scoring and discussing results of five key performance categories.
  3. Discuss a tool that can be used to measure, communicate and create next steps for improving supplier performance.

How does supply chain best collaborate with physicians to make value-based product selections?  The University of Vermont Health Network engaged with a technology and negotiation company to develop a mobile device application for physicians to view comparable cardiac rhythm management (CRM) device costs and features. Physicians also reviewed weekly scorecards tracking their device utilization, and selected their products to be used in advance of the case, minimizing pressure from the vendor to bias selection at the time of implant. The tool drove utilization savings because physicians further informed their device selection by seeing and better understanding the pricing deltas among suppliers, product features and technology.  The project resulted in a 20% cost reduction in the first year with over $1 million in savings for the network.  This session will share details of specifics of the project and ways that this application might benefit other systems in the future.
 
Learning Objectives:
1.Analyze best practices for collaboration between physicians and supply chain.
2.Identify the features available to physicians when using a mobile device application to make value-based product selections.
3.Discuss the savings opportunities and potential improvements in patient care that can result from use of a mobile device application.
