Many health care organizations have been told their item masters are full of “dirty data.” What they haven’t been told is that a focus on dirty data may miss the point. A dirty item master is a symptom, a lack of an item master management process and ownership is the illness. To succeed in the new world of health care reform, supply chain leaders need to understand the connection between item master management and core activities like standardization, value analysis and contract maximization.
