  Transforming to Becoming a Smart Hospital
  Business Intelligence in Healthcare Supply Chain
Supply Chain Management in a hospital plays a crucial role to transform its balance sheet from red to black.  There are many touch points within Supply Chain that requires closer examination to improve services and reduce costs across the hospital. Creating that visibility in data management using business intelligence will help transform hospital supply chain re-defining its role and begin to execute value-added activities across all aspects of the value chain.  Business intelligence may be a popular buzzword in the healthcare industry, as if it is the cure-all for all ailments in the clinical process. However, for it to yield the benefits that is expected to cut hidden costs, it needs to be properly managed. The 5 potential action points around BI are: supply data management; procurement; value analysis; sourcing and contracting.
