IMDA Update - September 2006

Indeed, the operating room is a resource-intensive department, says Ed Robinson, system vice president, supply chain services at OhioHealth, Columbus, Ohio. "The dollars under contract [in the OR] are usually much more significant than most other departments," he says. "Savings opportunities of several hundred thousand dollars annually are frequently identified and have much higher visibility within the organization."
Nature of the beast
The value of a healthy relationship between the surgeon and the vendor should not be underestimated, says Robinson. "The best sales reps are highly responsive, provide educational expertise and always come through with products and instrumentation in a pinch.
"At OhioHealth, we want to utilize the expertise of sales reps in an appropriate manner that complements our internal processes and structure, but does not create a critical dependency," he says.

"To sustain participation [in technology committee meetings], the physician must derive value from his or her involvement," says Robinson.

"Physicians want a place to practice medicine that is safe, efficient, user-friendly and provides a healing environment," adds Robinson. This means providing them with a greater say in how the organization is run.
The Journal of Healthcare Contracting

Last summer, Ed Robinson, system vice president of materials management for OhioHealth, Columbus, Ohio, reported that the IDN would be reviewing new med/surg distribution options available through Novation, and would upgrade to a smart-IV-pump platform that could be integrated into the IDN's medication safety and clinical documentation system.
Robinson reports that OhioHealth completed an extensive due diligence process regarding med/surg distributors. (Its current incumbent relationships are with Cardinal Health in the Central Ohio Region, and Seneca Medical for most of the northern hospitals in the OhioHealth network.) Although a contract had not been finalized at press time, OhioHealth had made the decision to pursue exclusive negotiations with Cardinal Health for the Central Ohio Region. The Cardinal agreement would be extended to hospitals outside of Central Ohio, but those facilities could elect to continue working with Seneca Medical, which, according to Robinson, has a strong record of serving the regional market in Ohio.
Robinson also reports that the IDN is continuing to review "smart" IV pump options for the Central Ohio Region, and has formed an IV Pump Steering Committee (comprising pharmacy, nursing, information systems, clinical engineering, finance and the supply chain) to oversee the process. Baxter is the primary current incumbent for IV pumps, sets and solutions. The review process has been delayed by the FDA recall of the Baxter Colleague volumetric infusion pumps, says Robinson. In addition, the clinical integration component of large-volume infusion technology "is much more complicated than originally envisioned," he says.
