Where is Cardinal Health investing in their business?
Cardinal Health CIO Michelle Greene on simplifying transformation
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Michelle Greene, who was promoted from SVP of EIT of Cardinal Health’s pharmaceutical segment to CIO last August. As technology chief, Greene is now charged with leading IT teams to help the Dublin, Ohio-based distributor and manufacturer of medical and laboratory products innovate new ways to evolve healthcare delivery. Central to that effort is structuring her IT organization to better partner with the business. Just three months into her tenure, Greene is already having an impact reorganizing IT — from application support to data analytics — for business impact.
Martha Heller: How do you define business transformation at Cardinal Health?
Michelle Greene: Business transformation at Cardinal Health is all about moving faster and being more agile to improve the experience of our customers. For example, we are advancing our digital capabilities to enable our customers across healthcare to seamlessly place, receive, and track orders more quickly. We all throw out this word “transformation” which seems like such a huge deal, but really, it is just about creating change. My goal is to simplify “transformation” into a clear strategy for achieving an end game. Right now, developing digital and commercial solutions for businesses across the company and our customers are key to our strategy. We are leveraging the power of data and analytics, artificial intelligence, automation, and more to enhance our products and services, internally and externally. But to be successful, we need to be in partnership with our business leaders and guide them along their technology journey. Too often in my IT leadership career, I felt like we were doing things to the business, instead of partnering with them.
How do you ensure IT has a strong partnership with the business?
In our new model, we will have technology leaders responsible for partnering with our pharma division, our medical division, and our corporate functions. Previously, the technology organizations in each division primarily operated separately, which led to siloed work with our heads down in our own space. My plan is for us to reimagine how our teams work together by simplifying our structure so we can operate as one organization and create seamless, cohesive experiences.
Martha Heller: What are the attributes you look for when filling those business-partner roles?
Michelle Greene: I look for people who are forward-thinking and have a strong ability to collaborate, both with their business partners and across the entire technology organization. I need people who can understand a problem and then point our technology teams in the right direction. Their job is not to solve problems themselves, but to define the strategy, get the right team on board, and help us focus on simplification. But, in order for the IT business partner roles to be successful, we need to centralize our foundational enterprise capabilities. For example, our SAP teams were previously spread out across the organization and typically worked separately unless there was a common issue. In our new model, we created an SAP center of excellence (CoE) that serves all parts of the business while also creating opportunities for best practice sharing, learning, career pathing, and better resource planning and deployment.

I'd also like to thank Trish for her contributions as interim CFO and her commitment to help with this transition."

Cardinal Health Pilots Supply Chain Solution for Hospital at Home
Cardinal Health has created a supply chain solution tailored to support the burgeoning hospital-at-home movement. Dublin, Ohio-based Cardinal’s Velocare is described as a supply chain network and last-mile fulfillment solution capable of reaching patients in one to two hours with critical products and services required for hospital-level care at home. To start, Cardinal Health at-Home Solutions is supporting a Medically Home health system customer pilot with Velocare, collectively enabling scaled, high-acuity care in the home. (In January 2022, Boston-based Medically Home announced that Cardinal Health was one of its investors.) Cardinal said Velocare brings together its capabilities through a combined offering intended for health systems, payers, digital health companies, telehealth providers and other entities moving high-acuity care to the home. Legacy Cardinal Health capabilities include global logistics and distribution expertise, management of a large network of suppliers and vendors, and access to a wide range of home-based care providers. The pilot with Medically Home will test the use of new technology, new order handling processes, small-format depots and short-haul delivery vehicles.
"We're excited to further expand our at-Home Solutions supply chain and logistics excellence to now reach patients receiving hospital-level care at home," said Rob Schlissberg, president, at-Home Solutions, in a statement. "With their mission of putting the patient at the center of care, combined with their differentiated supply chain network, Medically Home leads the way in bringing the hospital home. Our collaboration is driving scale and efficiency, and ultimately provides positive patient outcomes." The Velocare pilot includes real-time evaluation of the technology, service levels, effectiveness, patient experiences, plus consideration for future growth in new markets. "The ability to further scale the delivery of goods to the home will advance the rapidly growing hospital-at-home market, driving scale and efficiency for Medically Home's high-acuity care model," said Rami Karjian, CEO of Medically Home, in a statement. "The complexity of supply chain logistics is one of the significant barriers to health systems providing hospital-at-home care to their patients. This collaboration with Cardinal Health further enables the transformation of the delivery of patient care, which is at the heart of everything we do."
What are Cardinal Health executives saying about business performance?
Cardinal Health, Inc. (CAH) Q1 2023 Earnings Call Highlights
November 4, 2022
Executives in Attendance
- Kevin Moran, Vice President of Investor Relations
- Jason Hollar, Chief Executive Officer
- Trish English, Interim Chief Financial Officer
Comments from Jason Hollar - Chief Executive Officer:
"Overall, our performance in the first-quarter demonstrated continued stable fundamentals in our largest business, and tangible progress in Medical."
"In Pharma, we tracked slightly ahead of our expectations, as we delivered growth while managing industry-wide inflationary headwinds. We are encouraged by the ongoing stability in prescription volumes and strong performance of our generics program."
"In Medical, the quarter’s results were also a little better than expectations we announced in September. While I am pleased with our team’s efforts in the quarter to achieve these results, there is more work to be done to drive better, more predictable financial performance in-line with the underlying potential of this business. We are highly-focused on executing our Medical Improvement Plan initiatives, which I will cover in greater detail later in my remarks."
"Across the company, our team is operating with urgency to drive our businesses forward and committed to creating value for our shareholders."
Comments from Trish English - Interim Chief Financial Officer:
"First quarter total company revenue increased 13%, driven by Pharma segment sales growth."
"Gross margin decreased 2% to $1.6 billion due to net inflationary impacts in Medical and one month’s impact of the Cordis divestiture, partially offset by our Pharma generics program performance."
"Consolidated SG&A increased 7%, reflecting inflationary supply chain costs and other operating expenses such as higher costs to support Pharma sales growth. This increase was partially offset by the Cordis divestiture and benefits from enterprise-wide cost savings initiatives."
"Operating earnings decreased 20% to $423 million, reflecting the decline in Medical segment profit, primarily due to net inflationary impacts, and partially offset by growth in Pharma segment profit."
"Now, moving below the line, Interest and Other decreased 25% to $27 million dollars, primarily driven by increased interest income from cash and equivalents. As a reminder, our debt is largely fixed rate, resulting in a net benefit from rising interest rates."
"Our first quarter Effective Tax Rate finished at 16.9%, approximately 7 percentage points lower than prior year due to certain favorable discrete items."
"Diluted weighted average shares were $273 million, 6% lower than a year ago due to share repurchases. We are focused on balanced, disciplined, and shareholder-friendly capital deployment and in mid-September, we initiated a $1 billion dollar Accelerated Share Repurchase program that we expect to complete in the second quarter."
"We generated first quarter operating cash flow of approximately $25 million dollars. This includes total litigation payments of approximately $390 million dollars, primarily consisting of the second payment under the national opioid settlement. Adjusted free cash flow in our first quarter was $342 million dollars."
"First-quarter revenue increased 15% to $46 billion dollars, driven by branded Pharmaceutical sales growth from existing and net new Pharmaceutical Distribution and Specialty customers."
"Pharma segment profit increased 6% to $431 million dollars, driven by generics program performance and a higher contribution from brand and specialty products, partially offset by inflationary supply chain costs."
"During the quarter, we were pleased to see strong execution and continued consistent market dynamics in our generics program, including Red Oak."
