Take control of your non-acute care continuum.

Take the next step in building a stronger non-acute supply chain

No two health systems are the same. Big or small, each depends on a supply chain that can support all of its non-acute care sites – from the doctor’s office to the patient’s home. At McKesson, we understand your needs are unique. Together, we can help you take the necessary steps to build a stronger health system. The journey begins here. Get access to:

  • More than 40,000 medical-surgical supplies
  • The latest medical equipment
  • The right pharmaceuticals for your patient population
  • A point-of-care testing program that enables better patient outcomes
  • Access to real-time data to make better business decisions
Did you know?
95% of patient visits take place in non-acute care sites. Is your supply chain prepared to keep up with this demand?

We can help you take the next step

Take the lead in building a unique supply chain customized for your needs. We simplify back-office workflows through automated processes. We provide better analytics to help you gain visibility into data to increase compliance and uncover standardization opportunities. We also provide next day delivery, better service levels and support for backorders.

Take control in removing excess costs. We help align your supply sourcing to your GPO strategies. Reduce expenses, eliminate waste and manage a more cost-effective product formulary with our help. What’s more, we can help identify revenue generation opportunities like implementing point-of-care testing and reimbursement tools.

Take the next step to deliver better care across your non-acute continuum. Spend more time with patients and less time managing your supply chain. We help support quality care and patient access through a patient home delivery program, patient care programs for chronic care management, infection prevention and help in avoiding readmissions.

Achieve better outcomes when you align stakeholders across your non-acute to achieve your organizational goals. Lean on Six Sigma and project management experts for process assessments, evaluation and recommendations.

Every health system is different. Your supply chain should be, too

With McKesson, you never have to wonder what the next step is. We’re experts in non-acute, and have designed a powerful roadmap that helps organizations like yours build a supply chain that meets the needs of your business, your staff and, most of all – your patients.

Build operations that work for all of your non-acute sites.

Make sure your operational model is designed to meet the specific needs of each of the individual care settings. In the non-acute settings, it’s not a one-size-fits-all model. From the delivery model to the enabling technologies, supply chain has to evaluate and make critical decisions on which solution helps to drive down operational expenses while improving staff productivity. It’s extremely important that clinic staff spend their time on patient care and not on PAR levels.

Make smart decisions with customized analytics that bring you the information you need.

What are the ordering trends across your non-acute settings? Do you know the rate of usage of your most frequently ordered supplies? Having this data readily accessible can enable you to predict and automate future orders so that clinicians can focus on patient care instead of on product inventory.

Automate processes so your staff can spend more time with patients, and less time on paperwork.

How automated are your current non-acute supply chain processes? Automation is paramount to keeping costs down, and the quality of care up, according to Liz Hayes, Health Systems Technology Manager at McKesson. If you can automate back-end office functions, like procurement, you give more time back to the clinicians to spend on patient care and improve provider satisfaction.

Create a supply cost management plan that helps you make the most of your contracts.

Do you have a strategy that drives your underlying product cost decisions? Is it based on GPO compliance or on the lowest cost? How are you leveraging your aggregated volume to negotiate vendor contracts? How are you operationalizing these cost source strategies? Negotiating a great contract is just the beginning when it comes to driving down the cost of products.

Gain better visibility so you know what’s happening at each non-acute facility.

How does visibility into your system’s non-acute settings drive overall business goals? “As care moves out of the acute setting and into specialized non-acute settings, it becomes even more critical to ensure supply chain financial and decision support in those care settings,” states Jacob Hookom, Vice President of Customer Experience, Information Technology at McKesson. “This visibility helps improve your bottom line, and can help identify and measure operational efficiencies, care standardization, and contract compliance outside the four walls of the facility.”

Find opportunities to save money by standardizing products.

How does your system ensure that all non-acute locations are on formulary, and are meeting compliance goals? Although non-acute settings vary, there is still room for standardization of supply chain processes. The process of standardizing non-acute supply chain operations begins with the quality and scope of the data and analytics available to those responsible for supply chain operations.

Reduce readmissions with post-acute and home care programs.

How and where are medical supplies currently delivered to your organization’s post-acute care settings? If post-acute supplies are not being delivered directly to clinicians or patients at the point-of-care (including home health settings), clinicians may be wasting valuable time chasing down supplies, or patients may not have the necessary products to care for themselves properly at home.

Get better results by moving lab testing closer to patients.

How focused is your lab strategy on workflow efficiency as it relates to operational, clinical and financial feasibility? How integrated are your supply chain and lab functions – do they work together to impact revenue, increase patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes?

Strengthen your Rx supply chain with one of the industry’s largest portfolios of products.

How does your health system ensure that non-acute clinicians are meeting formulary and regulatory requirements for ordering, managing, dispensing pharmaceuticals, as well as disposing of unused drugs? How many suppliers are involved in providing pharmaceuticals to non-acute sites? The pharmaceutical supply chain is yet another area in which consolidation of suppliers and standardization leads to synergies across all settings.

Lead change across your health system and experience better outcomes.

Healthcare is always changing. Effectively managing through these changes requires great alignment of stakeholders and processes. Do you speak the same language as your stakeholders? Do you understand their goals? Do they understand how you can help them achieve those goals? One of your greatest challenges might be getting buy-in from the many stakeholders across the non-acute continuum. If so, you’re not alone.
