It's shocking that industry leadership is looking for easy wins when it comes to financial solvency.
It's not actually shocking. That's basically the case all the time, and it's especially the case as hospital systems are hemorrhaging billions of dollars due to COVID-19 restrictions. We were trying to be sarcastic, but this one - like many jokes these days - just came off as depressing. And for that, we apologize.
(Speaking of depressing: that lovable little scamp Macaulay Culkin just turned 40.)
This week we do have some good news, though. Because we ran across an initiative that enabled one hospital system to save $16 Million in six months.
But we can't blame everything on supply chain. We can't blame suppliers or vendors or managers. Because, doing it all on your own under adverse circumstances , you can only do so much. You need support. Resilience is overrated.
