Background: Mayo Clinic Supply Chain Management is recognized as one of the top supply chain organizations in the country and was recently designated as the number two supply chain organization by Gartner in the healthcare category. One large driver in this recognition is our ability to link financial, operational, and clinical data systems to provide patient outcome and procedure cost intelligence to drive decision-making.
Technology Description: The business intelligence system designed and implemented at Mayo Clinic provides analytical capability to those who manage supply chain expenses. This will, ultimately, drive behavioral change which, in turn, will help reduce expense. These best-in-class reporting tools are unique to the industry due to the integrated nature of the reporting. These reports have been based on the last 10-15 years of integrating Supply Chain Management into the practice and continue to evolve as the practice changes.
