Getting in on the Elective Procedure Implementation Conversation


If you’re just starting to discuss elective procedures, supply chain must continuously communicate and develop relationships with key players to maintain the importance of supply chain input in their minds.

  • Stay in constant communication with C-Suite on inventory levels, sourcing opportunities and needs
  • Invite yourself (if possible) to discussions regarding next steps and needs to ensure they have all the data they need
  • Make contact with all surgical/procedure leads and managers – ask them to keep you in the loop as discussions are starting about elective surgeries
