With the help of MEDITECH’s integrated supply chain functionality, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital will save $1.3 million in inventory-related costs this year. The results were recently published in a case study by NTT DATA.

East Tennessee Children’s now uses MEDITECH’s centralized electronic system to improve ordering and reduce costs — a big improvement from their old paper-based process. Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer Steven Godbold also estimates that the 152-bed hospital will cut its standing inventory from $4 million, down to $2.5 million.

"We've engaged NTT DATA and MEDITECH to assist us in becoming more streamlined in our materials management processes,"  says Godbold. "We've moved closer to a just-in-time inventory."
