  Abstract:   Many times we look strictly at the bottom line cost without considering the other elements that go into the process. Clinical outcomes, as well as vendor value adds, can help reduce your supply expense and obtain better value, more so than just looking at the product cost. During this session you will learn tips to help reduce supply expenses as well as improve clinical outcomes for your facility. Basic concepts about evaluating the entire vendor offering will be reviewed, including how to best work with your clinical staff to identify the best supply chain product options for your facility and work with clinical staff and the vendor community to reduce costs.

Learning Objectives:
     1.    Describe traits for success.
     2.    Explain the components of supply cost.
     3.    Explore cost reduction through effective use of available components.
