Supply Chain Efficiency 

We’re proud of our supply chain and cost cutting measures because they show how we’re working smarter – not just harder – throughout our entire organization to drive down the cost of the care we provide. 

For example, Froedtert Health successfully reduced its FY13 budget by $8.4 million through cost efficiencies in many areas:

  • Pharmaceutical brand changes and contract savings
  • Negotiated contract pricing in supply chain
  • Process improvements in health information management and radiology
  • Savings through facility management consolidation and air handling
  • Labor productivity improvements in radiology
  • Management of observation patients in patient care departments 

In addition to supply chain efficiencies, our Six Sigma and LEAN practices guide all the work we do. Learn more about how Froedtert Health employs these best practices throughout its hospitals and clinics.
