Abstract:  With supply chains under intense pressure to identify key areas for cost reduction, facilities have found it necessary to move beyond traditional areas of savings. Purchased services account for more than 16 percent of a facility’s operating expenses and typically include service areas such as clinical, ancillary, support, professional and other outsourced services. Because these areas are often overlooked as potential areas of cost reduction, a facility could be missing out on a 10 to 25 percent savings opportunity. This program will provide an overview of Parallon’s Purchased Services offering and will help members identify areas of savings available through HealthTrust’s extensive portfolio of purchased services contracts.
Learning Objectives:
     1.    Describe Parallon’s Purchased Services consulting offering.
     2.    Explain the HealthTrust Purchased Services contract portfolio.
     3.    Describe innovative models for improving purchased services through contracting efficiency.
