Value Driven through Transportation
Healthcare transportation can be one of two things:
- A low value, commodity function with the sole purpose to simply
courier materials between facilities.
- A strategic and competitive asset, which can be leveraged to
provide value and savings to the organization.
When properly applied, transportation has the ability to foster
strategic growth, allow an organization to refocus on its core and
provide data to make critical business decisions. Outsourcing to
MedSpeed allows healthcare organizations to make strategic gains
without having to invest the time and resources to build the
Transforming Transportation into a Strategic Asset
MedSpeed lifts the burdens of executing and managing day-to-day
transportation from our clients so that they have the freedom to
focus on their core business. What's more, our centralized
approach, technology, performance measurement and analysis
transform transportation from an ancillary service into a strategic
asset for our partners. Centralized operations allow us to manage
the system as a whole, easily making adjustments to the entire
operation at once. Our scanning technology not only ensures
security and accountability for the items being carried, but also
provides the critical data we utilize to measure and track
performance. Furthermore, we analyze all of that data to identify
new opportunities for improvement, such as right-sizing service
levels and additional centralization opportunities.
How We Do It
MedSpeed understands that our partners are looking for more than
just day-to-day execution from a medical courier. They want a
partner that will not only manage the daily activities but also
provide high-level strategic support and insight. How do we do it?
MedSpeed continues to earn our business. If MedSpeed was not an alternative, LifeShare would build the comprehensive transportation network at significant cost and extensive management effort.
