Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The cost of surgical supplies continues to increase, despite decreased governmental and private insurance reimbursement. The need to control costs, while providing optimal patient outcomes, is paramount. With this in mind, an academic, community Magnet health network implemented a perioperative value analysis process to evaluate products based on clinical efficacy, safety, and cost. The multidisciplinary team consists of perioperative nurses, surgeons, perioperative leadership, and supply chain professionals, coupled with a perioperative Products Nurse Specialist (PNS) to bridge the gap between the clinical and supply aspects of new products. The members meet bimonthly to discuss the addition of new products, process improvement, and standardization opportunities. Senior leadership provides oversight and guidance to the process. Meetings include product presentations focused on evidence based research, cost, projected usage, and financial impact. The PNS is a masters prepared OR nurse with a dedicated responsibility to facilitate the value analysis process. The PNS collaborates with perioperative leadership and Supply Chain Management, specifically with purchasing and the contract and product manager responsible for perioperative services. Approval of new products and elimination of current vendors may have serious impact on contracts and volume commitments, thus negating cost savings obtained through standardization initiatives. This multidisciplinary relationship provides the platform for discussion of products from both a clinical and financial perspective. The clinical link to supply chain through interactions with contracting, purchasing, and analytics is a key success factor for the value analysis process.
