Title: Sourcing Best Practices: Engage Physicians in Contracting and Product Standardization

Description: Hospitals and health systems are experiencing the most financially challenging environment in recent memory.

Achieving product standardization within the supply chain can alleviate these unprecedented financial challenges.
