Embracing the Cost-Quality-Outcomes Movement

The Future of Healthcare Supply Chain


Healthcare landscape 2012 changing times

Healthcare Landscape 2012: Changing Times

Under reform, fully phased-in hospital cuts (2019):

  • At BEST, baseline payment MINUS 14% (across-the-board cuts only)

  • At WORST, baseline payment MINUS 20% (across-the-board PLUS quality cuts)

    Hospitals need a comprehensive strategy

    to minimize costs while maximizing

    quality patient outcomes


Supply chain can drive that strategy

Supply Chain Can Drive that Strategy


Transformational events

Transformational Events

The economic downturn (cost driver) and healthcare reform (quality driver) are events with far-reaching implications for supply chain executives and serve as the driving force in the transformation of the supply chain executive role

The evolution of healthcare supply chain

The Evolution of Healthcare Supply Chain


What is the cqo movement

What is the CQO Movement?

The CQO Movement looks at the intersection of

CQO meaning the relationships between:

  • Cost (how it relates to the cost of services, products, supplies)

  • Quality(how it relates to the quality of patient care, the services provided) and

  • Outcomes(how it relates to patient outcomes, patient care, patient experience, reimbursement)

    It is important to consider these relationships together

    rather than in separate silos.


How ahrmm is reinventing i tself a round cqo

How AHRMM is Reinventing Itself Around CQO

  • Education Initiative with three areas of focus:

    • Quality & Cost

    • Reimbursement & Outcomes

    • (C) Continuum of Care

  • Webinars and FAQs

  • Committees


  • When supply chain owns the cqo intersection case study examples

    When Supply Chain Owns the CQO Intersection: Case Study Examples


    Embracing the cost quality outcomes movement

    CQO Movement Asks:

    What is unique about its clinical performance to justify its cost?


    Challenging hernia patient

    Challenging Hernia Patient

    • Ability to rapidly revascularize

    • Ability to integrate into host tissues

    • Resistant to infection


    Abdominal wall reconstruction

    Abdominal Wall Reconstruction

    Hernia patients with major complications & comorbidities account for about 7% of all hernia repairs


    Potential economic impact to hospital

    Potential Economic Impact to Hospital

    Potential cost of post-op complications related to ventral/incisional hernia repair


    Sample case costs

    Sample Case Costs

    SYNTHETIC MESH

    Cost of product $2000

    100% Reimbursement -$2000

    Cost of treating infection $11, 739

    Total = $11,739

    BIOLOGIC MESH

    Cost of product $13,000

    $32.25/sqcmReimbursement -$10,240

    Cost avoidance $0

    Total = $2760


    Cost justification

    Cost Justification

    • Consistent outcomes

    • Single stage

    • Decreased complication rates

    • Avoidance of further surgery


    Embracing the cost quality outcomes movement

    • CQO Asks:

    • How Do We Reduce Needlestick Injuries in Healthcare?

    • >800,000/yr in US

    • Risk of blood borne pathogens

    • Education only means of addressing


    Embracing the cost quality outcomes movement

    • CQO Asks:

    • How Do We Reduce Needlestick Injuries in Healthcare?

    • New syringes with improved safety mechanisms


    Embracing the cost quality outcomes movement

    CQO Asks:

    What is Unique About its ClinicalPerformance to Justify its Cost?


    Safety syringes

    Safety Syringes

    • 1 Needlestick injury/6000 injections

    • Average cost of testing/treatment after injury equals $3000

    • Additional costs of treatment can add up to hundreds of thousands


    Case costs conventional safety syringes

    Case Costs: Conventional Safety Syringes

    SUPPLY CHAIN INTERVENTION: DECREASE SAFETY SYRINGE PRICE BY 15%

    Note: * Negotiate minimum reduction of $3,500 mesh per unit cost


    Case costs new vs conventional safety syringes

    Case Costs: New vs. Conventional Safety Syringes

    SUPPLY CHAIN INTERVENTION: CONVERT TO IMPROVED SAFETY SYRINGES

    Note: * Negotiate minimum reduction of $3,500 mesh per unit cost


    Case costs conventional vs new safety syringes

    Case Costs: Conventional vs. New Safety Syringes

    SUPPLY CHAIN INTERVENTION: OBTAIN PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE

    Note: * Negotiate minimum reduction of $3,500 mesh per unit cost

    Cost justification1

    Cost Justification

    • Consistent outcomes

    • Improved quality of hospital experience

    • Best practice medicine


    Embracing the cost quality outcomes movement

    Supply chain is perfectly positioned at the intersection of cost, quality, and outcomes to take the lead on responding to the demands of health reform.

    AHRMM is leading the way.
