Procurement costs account for more than 30 percent of a hospital’s expenditure, in fact procurement is the largest outgoing second only to staffing expenses and yet for years it has been considered a back office process. Many hospitals don’t have a procurement representative in the c-suite and often, the topic is not even discussed. This month in Healthcare Global, we interviewed Richard Macintosh, Managing Director and Procurement Expert from consultancy firm, Inverto about ways hospital executives can improve and make lean their procurement process and consequently save considerable amounts of money.

In this issue we also take a look at the latest social media channel developed specifically for business executives, Businessfriend. The newly launched social network could help open up the lines of communication between hospital executives and facilitate information sharing more readily, allowing for cost saving and efficiencies down the line.

Finally we take a look at ERP solutions and financial planning software solutions.
