National Healthcare Supply Chain Week

National Healthcare Supply Chain Week (SC Week) is October 1-7, 2017 with the theme: Healthcare Supply Chain: Advancing Exceptional Outcomes. In today’s rapidly shifting healthcare landscape, hospitals and health systems are increasingly challenged to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes, without sacrificing the quality of care. Healthcare 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 healthcare organization.
