Intermountain Healthcare, a $4.3bn nonprofit health system, has selected TECSYS's supply chain management solutions to enable transformation of its Hospital Supply Network to a self-distribution model.
TECSYS officials estimate Intermountain will significantly decrease operating costs and be able to support its clinical chain with more than 99 percent availability of supplies to the point of use, and at the same time gain unequivocal inventory visibility of its entire delivery network.
Intermountain comprises 23 hospitals, 150 clinics throughout the state of Utah and is also one of the state's largest health insurers.
"At Intermountain, extraordinary clinical care is at the heart of our mission and our supply chain promise is to bring to the front line needed resources, efficiently and affordably to meet our commitment of ensuring that care-givers are focused on patients," says Brent Johnson, vice president of supply chain. "With the self-distribution model enabled through TECSYS, we will be able to plan, receive, store and distribute thousands of products that we provide across our supply network from a single central location, vastly increasing efficiency, reducing cost and improving service."
