2022 Supply Chain Learning Series: Social Responsibility Spotlight Focus on Supplier Diversity and Sustainability
Supply chain executives & managers have an ongoing need for sharing best practices in their profession. Supply chain touches all aspects of the health care delivery system from clinical to operational to financial and is an increasingly strategic function within provider organizations. By understanding how others achieve success within these varied areas—through collaboration with professionals and leaders—learnings can spread more quickly, resulting in better patient care at lower costs.
Explain the value of benchmark data against cohorts of similar organizations as a key driver for targeting improvement activities for the healthcare supply chain.
Describe how price management, purchase management, transaction efficiency, purchase standardization, clinical integration and supplier diversity can each contribute to supply chain operational excellence.
Discuss how digital process automation, collaboration with channel partners and a discipline around data accuracy contribute to efficiency and reliability of the supply chain.
