As more healthcare organizations look for ways to reduce costs, purchased services have become a top priority for executives and the supply chain department. Even with increasing exposure, purchased services remain misunderstood. The vast nature, scale and newness beg for questions to be answered and fact to be separated from fiction.
Since it is October, we thought it was time the healthcare community deserved a treat, instead of a trick. Submit your worst supplier purchasing or negotiation experience below before October 28 and you could earn a donation to your favorite breast cancer charity on behalf of your hospital, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Once we select the top three scariest stories, we’ll post them to our special Horror Stories Blog from October 29 to 31. Also, don’t worry about being terrorized by monsters for sharing your story; your name, facility and the supplier will be anonymous.
