Idea Exchange: Consolidated Services Centers (CSCs) Forum 

Monday, February 21, 2022

Session Leader: Michael Langlois

In recent years, hospitals and health systems have looked at possible ways to strengthen their operations and reduce the complexity within their healthcare distribution systems. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, these challenges were no longer possible to ignore, and strategies had to be developed. For some, Consolidated Services Centers (CSCs) have been adopted to combat this complexity and achieve high levels of performance and innovation. Join us in an open-forum discussion on some of the lingering issues we’re seeing within the healthcare industry, and how CSCs are being used to solve them.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the major challenges that have impacted your healthcare distribution system pre- and post-pandemic.
  2. Compare various strategies that have been used to combat the complexities in managing healthcare distribution.
  3. Develop an understanding of how Consolidated Services Centers are being used to achieve high levels of performance across the healthcare industry.
  4. Outline strategies for determining the most viable solutions for your healthcare distribution and operations teams.
