Clinical product variation—using multiple brands and SKUs often from various manufacturers—is one of the biggest threats to health systems. While a certain degree of variation is expected, too many deviations can impact patient outcomes and bottom lines.1
RISKS of Clinical Product Variation1,2
- Inconsistency in quality and protocols
- Operational inefficiencies
- Decision fatigue and non-compliance
- Low patient and nurse satisfaction
- Increased opportunities for human and clinical error
- Higher overall costs
With more and more health systems transitioning to value-based care, healthcare leaders are moving away from product variation and toward standardization—reducing brands, SKUs, and even manufacturers down to one when possible. In fact, according to Premier Inc., nearly 100% of health system CEOs expect to increase standardization of their physician-preferred items.2
