3 Stages of Hospital Supply Chain Management (SCM) Maturity
Having been involved in the development of a pan-Canadian Electronic Health Record, I have a keen interest in how healthcare benefits from standardized policies and technologies designed to reduce healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes and safety through improved synergies and efficiencies. My interest also extends to the hospital supply chain. With inventories representing 30% of hospital costs, second only to labor costs, there are huge gains in organizational performance that can be had through better supply chain management.
