their decarbonization efforts. "

The World Health Organization projects
dramatic shortages of both clinicians
and supply chain workers. Healthcare organizations
are responding with a range
of formal and informal pipeline strategies,
Schiller says. Examples include
internal travel nurse programs, paying
students' tuitions in exchange for work
commitments, offering signing bonuses,
and seeking new partnerships.
For example, healthcare organizations
in Colorado are aligning with the
Department of Defense (DoD) SkillBridge
program, which enables military
service members to gain civilian work
experience through specific industry
training during their last 180 days of
service. Professional development programs
for " upskilling " nurses in certain
care settings, such as ambulatory or
post-acute care, also are popular.
As for maintaining inventories of supplies
and equipment, dedicated value
analysis teams are critical, Schiller
says. " The organizations that do have
value-analysis teams focus on the highcost,
high-risk procedural and support
departments, including the OR, anesthesia,
pre/postop, and SPD, " he explains.
" The combined expertise of the
clinicians with the supplier/sourcing expertise
of the supply chain professional
help to identify the best products that
provide the best outcomes for the patient
population under the care of the
health care organization. "
The better the collaboration between
supply chain leaders and OR teams, the
greater the likelihood of identifying problems
before adversity strikes. " Working
together, physicians, clinicians and supply
chain colleagues need to establish
the criteria and create an agreed upon
definition of what is a 'critical' supply, "
Schiller says. " Afterwards both groups
can begin to assess their surgical supwww.ormanager.com
ply
chain to risk stratify those supplies. "
Strategies for reducing the impact
of shortages in high-risk inventory include
multisource contracts, increased
inventory levels, and tier-mapping of upstream
suppliers to better understand
weak points in the supply chain. " Addressing
the perioperative supply chain
to this degree results in a more secure
and resilient supply chain and ensures
clinical acceptance of alternative products
in advance, versus pivoting to alternatives
suppliers and supplies in the
midst of adversity, " Schiller says.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine
learning (ML) also show significant
promise for supply chain management
and contingency planning. Among
other evidence, Schiller cites a McKinsey
& Co report that suggested early
adopters of AI and ML reduced inventory
expense by 35% and logistics costs
by 15%. Other potential supply chain applications
for AI include contracts, inventory
management, and identifying risks
of fraud or theft. " AI and [ML] can identify
patterns at the onset of an issue,
helping supply chains to become more
flexible, " he says. ORM
