11:25 Panel Discussion | Collaborating Across the Chain to Remove the Pain in Consignment Inventory

Consignment continues to be a pain point for both manufacturers and providers, and it’s not going to go away. Once the inventory is in the hospital, there is limited visibility. It can often disappear or doesn’t get billed, creating huge inefficiencies. Frequently there is more inventory in the pipeline than will be used during the life of the product and there are huge liabilities to manufacturers if products expire, and 99% of hospitals have expired products on their shelves. How can manufacturers and providers remove these inefficiencies?
Panelists will discuss:
• Promising technologies that provide traceability
• Middle-pathways for manufacturers to gain visibility and control while ensuring providers have products
• Gaining visibility into lead times for surgeries
• How to get ahead of the curve before personalized medicine becomes the norm
