[FREE WHITEPAPER] Clinically Integrated Supply Chain To Improve Resiliency And Patient Outcomes
Clinical care and patient outcomes relies on the availability of clinical supplies. COVID-19 caused shutdowns and reduced capacity resulting in supply shortages that eventually spread to the entire clinical supply chain. The persistent effects of the pandemic have made the current healthcare landscape even more uncertain, complex, and challenging.
As health systems try to recuperate, they face many challenges— financial constraints, uncertainty due to peaks and troughs of COVID-19 waves, staffing shortages, and rising costs being among them. It is more important than ever that health systems create and maintain resilient supply chains.
At the end of 2022 we surveyed OR Directors and Supply Chain Leaders to undercover their thoughts on the current state of today’s supply chain. This report explores:
- Improving financial and operational performance
- Why bringing together clinical and supply chain teams is a key component to achieving supply chain resiliency and patient outcomes
- Steps to achieve a clinically integrated supply chain
