Announcement: Join Carl's Talk About Expiration Avoidance at AHRMM Virtual


Blog Header - ahrmm21 carl headshot 1

Z5 Inventory CEO Carl Natenstedt is a featured speaker at the AHRMM21+ virtual conference Wednesday, September 15.

Please lend Carl your ears as he leads a session on the topic of something near and dear to our heart: medical and surgical supply expiration avoidance. He'll be sharing the healthcare inventory optimization strategies that produced more than $16 million in cost-saving results for Steward Health Care. 

Learning Lab Session: How One Network Realized It Could Save $16 Million By Throwing Less Away - Carl Natenstedt, CEO Z5 Inventory 
When: 9/15 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM 

Top 3 Session Takeaways:

    1. Plan inventory optimization and redistribution initiatives
    2. Identify what technological and logistical outsourcing requirements 
    3. Convince stakeholders of the value of expiration cost avoidance

We'd hate for you to miss this invaluable learning lab exploring inventory redistribution initiatives that increased profitability and underscored the value of expiration cost avoidance. 

But if you aren't able to make the live presentation for any reason - or if you just want a preview of the information that Carl will be covering - you can take a look at our Z5 Reallocate case study that outlines how Steward was able to move, sell, and donate their excess inventory to meet their expiration avoidance goals. 

Every hospital has the ability to experience savings and success on this scale, provided they get the help that they need. The newly redesigned Z5 Inventory mobile app and online dashboard make it easy for healthcare providers of all sizes to capture data quickly and optimize supplies based on industry-leading analytics. 

Want to take a peek at that, too?
