Posted 15-Jan-2024: There have been many projections offered by different groups as to where Healthcare is heading in the coming years, but if anything is certain, we all need to have a serious decision as to our Nation’s Supply Chain. If we continue headfirst on our current path and not fix the real problem, most certainly there will be another event, just around the corner, similar to what happened during COVID-19 that will shut everything down once more. The one question on everyone’s lips - have we truly learned anything from past or are we simply slated to repeat them again? Problems that simply will not go away:
Designing facilities to withstand disruptions – it is apparent there is still no discussions associated with Materials Management Design-Development. Burn-out within staff continues to create shortages; along with lack of controls with software interfacing, has produces inventory accuracies, as to what and where materials actually reside within a facility. Unfortunately, designs continue to be offered with no new features; just carbon-copies of the past.
Containing Costs - remain very high; with no signs of reducing outlays charges to the patient. Availability seems to be controlled by suppliers to keep pricing high (much like experienced with fuel charges at the pumps) – “supply / demand” – raising costs and for the purpose of profit-margins.
Purchasing the right technologies for sustainability – everyone talks about AI as the “savior of humanity” to reduce the above two items but are we just moving in a direction for the sake of advancement without truly understanding what is represents (Terminator I / II / III / etc.). Must like software development, it can be a beast (Pandora’s Box) that will not go back into the lamp once rubbed. Progress is needed, but caution must also be considered. Automation as certainly assisted progress within our Nation and others, but there must be controls put in place to monitor; to ensure it they meet our needs.
In future newsletters, we will be addressing, in more detail, these three areas – so stay tune. In the meantime, know that we at RemTecH Associates vet everything before offering information to you to allow you to think before executing any action. We do this as your partner, not just another consultant in hopes that – what is offered will allow you to “climb-to-the-next-level” safety to produce true sustainability within your facility without causing ill-reversible-damage costing you more money to repair.
