If you are shipping medical supplies or durable medical equipment directly out of your DME/HME facility or paying inbound freight expenses, there are ways to improve your bottom line. Many DMEs are unaware that a freight management company can provide better shipping rates than you could negotiate with national carriers on your own. After this webcast, you'll be able to: • Understand the ins/outs of freight management • Identify key considerations when choosing a freight management provider • Recognize the simplicity of implementing a savings program without impacting patients or your customers Speaker: Jonathan Kernya Dir. of Customer Operations, Cardinal Health OptiFreight ® Logistics Moderator: Rick Rector Publisher, HME News Reducing your shipping costs: Quick ways to improve your bottom line Brought to you by: Register for free today: revenue streams in post-dis- charge care? Dan Hayes: HME providers need to change the perspec- tive of their potential client from viewing them solely as a medical equipment supplier to a company who is truly capa- ble of achieving quality clinical patient outcomes. h M e : How do providers get their foot in the door with a hospital or health system and, when they do, convince them to pay for these services? Hayes: The HME should work to identify the pain points of the hospital, such as a high readmis- sion rate, excessive length of stay (LOS), or over utilization of their emergency department. A clear proposal of how the HME can help in these areas should make the hospital more recep- tive to their message. h M e : What's the role of technol- ogy in enabling and powering this business model for provid- ers? Hayes: As in most industries today, technology can play a large role in ensuring both the efficiency and efficacy of the program. (For example), tech- nology can help the provider generate reports both on a patient level and at their com- pany level to show the progress and success of the program. h M e d A n h A y ES C O n T i n u E D f R O m P a g E 1 8 M edtr A de booth 752 SHOW PRODUCTS McKesson Medical- s urgical Lightweight Aluminum r ollator Lightweight, 13-pound aluminum frame construction safely supports users up to 300 pounds with style.
