NEW Fact File:
Reducing Operating Room Supply costs


Health care systems continue to feel the pressure to reduce spend. Payment models are moving from fee-for-service to bundled programs. Since the operating room (OR) accounts for 40 to 60 percent of supply spend and must cope with the constant demand for new technology, a solid strategy and a collaborative environment are required to keep OR costs down while improving patient outcomes. Successfully maintaining high-quality care while reducing surgical costs requires that health care executives, staff and surgeons be aware of OR expenses and participate in cost reduction strategies.

Vizient® formed a Reducing O.R. Supply Costs Collaborative with 12 participating health systems to focus on lowering OR expenses and identifying tools to help manage these costs and look beyond pricing.
