ABSTRACT
Supplies and equipment costs represent the greatest opportunities for cost savings. To effectively cut costs in these areas, pay attention to details, and make sure you have effective controls to manage costs. • Standardization of products in one specialty saved Rochester (NY) General Hospital a minimum of $500,000 in one year. • Set up a policy that requires vendors to work with, or at least have initial contact with, one person in the program. • Don't trial equipment or supplies unless you know they could pass your financial evaluation.
