Strategic Sourcing Guide to Surgical Drains Procurement

Overview

The market for Medical and Surgical Consumables and its sub-segments such as Surgical Drains are at an interesting intersection. Buyers that have multiple locations under management are increasingly opting for a single supplier who can deliver the preferred solutions in a consistent manner across locations. Often suppliers with a physical presence across key geographies are preferred in such cases.

Recent cases of malpractices committed within the overall industry have increased the strictness of regulators within the overall industry. Suppliers now operate with a higher burden in the form of increased costs for compliance and data security as well as increased time to receive approvals for new solutions.

The growing need for highly skilled workforce specialized in Surgical Drains is driving suppliers to increase compensation for experience professionals to retain them. This is inflating their OPEX and causing increase in procurement costs.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Surgical Drains is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Surgical Drains Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Surgical Drains. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Category managers must ensure that they have clearly identified and listed down potential negotiation levers to maximize the value of their category spend before entering into contract-related discussions with service providers. Common negotiation levers to maximize value include deadlines, terms related to payments, (including fees, expenses, and payment timelines) and assistance required from the buyer's organization.

Buyers should look to minimize the contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms. Although these clauses are not very common in the category, suppliers may still insist on them, especially in situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question.

Before engaging in a contractual agreement with suppliers, buyers should focus on identifying and understanding various critical parameters along with their impacts on different procurement models.

  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Surgical Drains may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
