The path forward
Frontline clinicians, service line leaders, and administrators weigh the importance of the supply chain differently, and they face a different set of challenges. But they agree that the supply chain has a major impact on their hospitals top priorities: managing costs and quality of care.
It’s essential to bring stakeholders together to understand options for improving supply chain processes and to quantify the benefits of these improvements, not only for the bottom line, but for patients and employees as well.
