Operating Room Supply Chain Optimization Training

Operating rooms are complex, challenging environments. To manage one effectively, hospitals need an abundance of resources and skilled coordination. The many moving parts of an OR—from supplies and equipment to purchasing and scheduling—require expert optimization of the supply chain.

That’s where VIE Healthcare can help.

Our unique OR supply chain optimization training teaches physicians and staff how to avoid supply problems specific to the OR environment.

With the help of our experienced consultants, your OR team can avoid missing information and equipment at the most inopportune times. Here at VIE, we know that with one small supply issue, surgeries can fail to be performed efficiently, cost effectively, and safely.

Our comprehensive training program helps your OR put all the right pieces in place to optimize patient outcomes.
