As hospitals look at implant contracts, an implant management system can help them assess the total cost of doing business with each vendor. This includes more than just the line item price of the implant; it includes logistical costs (shipping), support costs (labor costs of scheduling and supporting the case), and sterilization costs. Suppose that two vendors have comparable implant pricing, but “Vendor A” brings 9 vendor sets to support the case, and “Vendor B” only needs to bring 4. Vendor A shows a pattern of last-minute delivery of instruments because they do not have adequate instrument inventory to support the cases, but Vendor B makes timely deliveries. Ultimately, Vendor A is costing the hospital more money in hidden costs that could be avoided.
