   Abstract:  With upcoming health-care reform changes, facilities are asked to do more with less. Surgical services have the top supply spend in facilities but partnering with supply chain initiatives will increase efficiencies, physician and clinical satisfaction, reduce supply cost and improve metrics. This organization developed a surgical services program, pairing the operating room with supply chain to accomplish their goals. Having the right person in the right job with standardization and best practices will help your facility meets its goals and ensure your customers have the right supply at the right time. The end result: Supply chain manages supplies and clinicians focus on patient care.
Learning Objectives:
     1.    Describe the impact surgical procedures, scheduling and preference cards have on supply management.
     2.    Explain the importance of the right person in the right role.
     3.    Recognize the value of meaningful metrics.
