A Journey Through the Healthcare Wilderness:   IDN Supply Chain Metrics and Benchmarking
Join this interactive session with Gartner’s Eric O’Daffer to discuss IDN Supply Chain Metrics and benchmarking.   In this session, you will get access to a recently launched benchmarking initiative and practical advice regarding metrics.   This research reflects an end-to-end connected view of benchmarks that aligns supply chain metrics to total cost of patient care and outcomes.  In addition, this session gives time for group discussion on benchmarking categories and process.    Come ready to give feedback and share your views and experiences on metrics and benchmarking at IDNs. 
Learning Objectives:
1. Analyze benchmarking opportunities for your organization.
2. Identify three benchmarking categories and savings that can be realized in these areas.
3. Discuss the challenges in obtaining reliable benchmark information.
