Healthcare Supplychain Radio: Managing Inventory Post-COVID
Host: John Pritchard, Publisher, The Journal of Healthcare Contracting (JHC)
• Angela McNally, Vice President of Provider Solutions, Owens & Minor
• Patrick McMahon, Vice President of Services, Owens & Minor
As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, many hospitals quickly stockpiled supplies they had never sourced before, and now they have items they didn’t use during the peak of the pandemic. How do hospitals get their COVID-19 stockpile in order?
Angela McNally and Patrick McMahon of Owens & Minor discuss this challenge and more with John Pritchard of The Journal of Healthcare Contracting (JHC) in the second part of a two-part series covering hospitals and IDNs resuming surgeries. It’s the latest Healthcare Supplychain Radio podcast called “Managing Inventory Post-COVID.”
“Hospitals face dynamic challenges moving forward due to carrying large amounts of inventory with unpredictable demand,” said Pritchard. “Angela and Patrick speak to post-COVID strategies that can prepare hospitals for the long-term and for future epidemics.”

Healthcare Supplychain Radio: Best Practices for Hospitals and Supply Chain Resuming Surgeries
As states begin to lift restrictions on certain surgeries and procedures for hospitals and health systems, electives have restarted after being suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic.
John Raab and Patrick McMahon of Owens & Minor, and Mark Campbell of Tampa General Hospital discuss the supply chain and demand challenges for hospitals during the restart, the staffing issues, the financial pressures, the data points and the PPE tracking with John Pritchard of The Journal of Healthcare Contracting (JHC) in the latest Healthcare Supplychain Radio podcast, “Best Practices for Hospitals and Supply Chain Resuming Surgeries.”
Historical data points are critical as hospitals restart elective surgeries. Knowing what procedures are scheduled one to four weeks ahead of time, what’s actually been done in the past, how to block time and utilize it, and tracking daily usage of surgical product and PPE, which has thrown a new wrinkle into the mix. Tracking PPE daily is new to the OR.
It’s important for hospitals to have confidence in their supply source, their distributor and their manufacturers. The supply chain is still intact, but the demand for product is more robust. Confidence in their supply will save hospitals from over ordering during this restart.

Hospitals and health systems quickly stockpiled for the pandemic without much management of those supplies.
