Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are experiencing higher than normal demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical related products. Many of these items are currently on manufacturer allocation. As a result, product availability is extremely volatile and inventory is being closely monitored and restricted to best meet the needs of our customers. Please contact your Concordance Account Manager for specific inventory questions. Due to the high demand for PPE and other COVID-19 related products, all PPE and COVID-19 related items sold will be considered outside of normal business and not eligible for return. All PPE and COVID-19 related items are final sale and non-returnable.

We apologize for the inconvenience but live chat is temporarily suspended so we can realign some personnel to focus on the needs of our customers during the COVID-19 outbreak. If you are a current customer, please call your local customer service specialist. Please have your account number ready when you call.

Selecting a Supply Chain Partner for Your Long Term Care Facility

Selecting a Supply Chain Partner for Your Long Term Care Facility

Posted: 2/6/18 1:00 PM    Author: Concordance Healthcare Solutions
  

Over 58,000 long term care providers cared for more than 8 million people in 2012. Divided between adult day services, home healthcare, hospice, nursing homes and assisted living, long term care provides a valuable service for a significant portion of our population. As the baby boomer generation continues to age and Millennials approach middle age, long term care needs are only expected to increase.

While the types of care may vary by facility, one thing that is consistent is the need for healthcare supplies and equipment. In order to provide the best patient care possible, your supply chain must be adaptable and reliable. When selecting a healthcare supply chain partner, there are some points you should consider.

Flexibility

Residents requiring long term care commonly have compromised immune systems and their condition can change quickly. In order to provide the best care, you may need custom supplies and equipment on short notice. Your routine supply needs may also fluctuate. Having flexibility when obtaining supplies is key.

Industry Knowledge

The long term care industry faces many unique challenges. Understanding these challenges makes choosing the right product easier.

Product Knowledge

With so many product and equipment options available, it can be overwhelming trying to choose the right supplies. Keeping up on the latest trends and technology is time consuming. Having a resource that combines industry and product knowledge saves time and money.

Solutions Oriented

The long term care facilities in the U.S. vary greatly in size, ownership and service. Each facility has a unique set of needs that creates challenges. Working with a supplier who understands that and provides expertise in possible solutions can assist in problem solving and process improvement.
