We would like to tell you about a wonderful opportunity for you and your Supply Chain staff to become a member of the North Carolina Association of Healthcare Resource and Materials Management (NCAHRMM). For the minimal fee of $50.00 annually, you can offer your staff many cost effective educational sessions to improve their knowledge base, keep up with the latest supply chain issues, and assist them to be more effective in their professions. Healthcare professionals need to understand more than just receiving and delivering of supplies but also the cost of ownership of the supplies, cost of procedures, patient care outcomes, value analysis, strategic sourcing, reimbursements, and the ever-changing new technology and procedural processes in the healthcare supply chain management. Knowledge is power and provides your staff with pride, confidence, leadership skills, and effectiveness in the patient care that they provide daily.
Membership also offers outstanding network capabilities with other healthcare professionals and vendors that share the same problems and issues with their facilities. Educational sessions can provide interactive group discussions on common supply chain issues while providing new ideas. It is very interesting to see that you are not unique in the issues you face. It also provides opportunity for vendor representatives to present their successes as well as they assist us in solving patient care problems.
By joining NCAHRMM for the great price of $50.00, your cost of the seminars offered will be reduced for members. NCAHRMM also encourages it’s members to become a nationally recognized Certified Materials and Resource Professional (CMRP) by offering an annual session to review the information on the CMRP test. The CMRP status provides both internal and external recognition of being among the elite in a critical area of healthcare.
Join today, share this information, and encourage your staff to become a member of this important elite group. Perhaps you could make a NCAHRMM membership a part of your employee recognition program. Vendor representatives can also become a team player with the customers they work with daily. What a great way to raise self-esteem and provide education to those who have limited resources for professional growth.
