National Health Care Supply Chain Week

National Health Care Supply Chain Week (SC Week) is October 7-13, 2018, with the theme: Health Care Supply Chain. Innovation through Collaboration. In today’s rapidly shifting health care landscape, hospitals and health systems are increasingly challenged to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes, without sacrificing the quality of care. Health care supply chain is uniquely positioned to connect various stakeholders across the continuum of care - no other group interacts with every major stakeholder internally and externally. It is this unique role that allows the supply chain professional to identify connections to deliver value in order to reduce costs, deliver efficiencies, and improve the quality of care for patients and communities.

Join your peers nationwide during SC Week to promote the profession and be reminded about many important roles you take on every day to advance your health care organization.
