Cost Analysis in Supply Management
By: Kelsey L. Pecka
Department: Supply Chain
Mentor: Donna Lynn
Who We Are:
“Supply Management is responsible for the ordering of optimum levels of supplies, and consumables maintained for Lehigh Valley Health Network.”
What We Do:
“It is the policy of Lehigh Valley Health Network to achieve product standardization, and ensure products utilized meet the requirements acceptable to the clinical staff and the network through the development of a product formulary.”
This project aims to capture the statistics of the Supply Management Department and create cost analysis dashboards to observe monthly spending, saving, and activity.
