Lesson Learned number: 66
Lesson Learned/Best Practice
Lesson learned here is to create a monthly dialogue with HCA’s Medical Equipment vendors who deliver equipment to the project toward completion.
We found a best practice to be creating somewhat of a “monthly newsletter” that goes out to the vendors with site updates, schedule updates, and progress of the project. This helps create a better dialogue with vendors so they know who they are dealing with and who to ask questions and follow up with. This also creates a streamline service so no delivery is showing up late or early. This will be applied to our projects moving forward.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Create a monthly newsletter to equipment vendors with site updates, schedule updates, and progress of the project to improve dialogue with vendors and ensure no delivery shows up too late or early.
