Financial difficulties, workforce constraints and evolving health care models are forcing supply chain leaders to rewrite their playbooks. Traditional priorities like effectively managing spend, selecting reliable suppliers and improving operational efficiency remain in place, but hospitals and health systems are adopting new approaches to meet cost, operation and quality demands. 

High-performing supply chains are developing new practices to ensure supply resiliency across all care delivery. Health systems now look beyond the traditional players and supply chains to assess cost saving opportunities, appropriate inventory levels, variability, and supply analytics for enhanced performance. This Leadership Scan episode will explore how to improve resiliency in your supply chain, reduce costs, increase visibility and drive greater efficiency. 

Learning Objectives 

  • Solutions to address top health care supply chain challenges. 
  • Using digital procurement to improve clinically, operationally, and financially.

  • Exploring ways to accelerate transformation in your organization.
