Each year, a first week of October is dedicated to celebrating healthcare supply chain professionals for their outstanding contributions to healthcare and the overall success of the supply chain. Sponsored by AHRMM, National Healthcare Supply Chain Week (SC Week) provides an opportunity to recognize the integral role supply chain professionals play in delivering high-quality patient care throughout the healthcare industry.
The 2014 SC Week theme is Healthcare Supply Chain: Integration Through Collaboration.
In January 2013 AHRMM launched the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement to lead the supply chain profession as it operates from the intersection of cost, quality, and outcomes to meet the demands of the new healthcare delivery model. Healthcare reform gives supply chain professionals the opportunity to take ownership of the intersection of CQO. By collaborating with cross functional departments, supply chain can integrate healthcare organizations towards optimal performance.
Let’s celebrate all supply chain professionals for their hard work and strategic value, which help ensure that healthcare delivery organizations thrive and succeed in the new healthcare landscape.
