Supply chain tip of the week: Direct users to correct formularies

The most effective way to manage purchasing compliance is to ensure requestors see the products supply chain leaders have negotiated the best prices for, according to Michael DeLuca, executive vice president of technology and client services for Cranberry Township, Pa.-based Prodigo Solutions.

He shared the following tip with Becker's Hospital Review:

"The ability to surface product formularies to satisfy both the requestor and the supply chain has improved in recent years, evolving beyond legacy item master lists and distributor website options of the past. Once you streamline the requisition workflow for requestors, you can drive contract compliant information directly to the point of requisition from a single source. This allows you to direct spend to preferred contracted vendors, eliminating discretionary purchasing options, while delivering real-time transparency and cost control to all purchasing activity across the enterprise supply chain."
