We observe National Healthcare Supply Chain Week Oct. 1-7, 2023 because it is imperative to recognize the vital role that supply chain professionals play in delivering exceptional patient care.
MercuryGate TMS enhances pharmaceutical transportation and healthcare supply chain management by augmenting visibility, focusing on future-ready solutions, and delivering operational efficiencies.
The Importance of the Healthcare Supply Chain
Supply chain failure, as evidenced during the pandemic with widespread shortages of PPE and other medical supplies, can have dire consequences for patient outcomes and put immense strain on healthcare professionals.
Moreover, the United States spends nearly double per capita on healthcare compared to other affluent nations. Efficient supply chain management not only aids in lowering overhead costs but also contributes to more affordable healthcare services. In a landscape where every dollar counts, the supply chain is a cost-saving mechanism and a vital organ in healthcare.
Unveiling the Power of Partnerships
Partnerships drive innovation, augment efficiencies, and ultimately, elevate patient care. Healthcare organizations are adopting new strategies to enhance supply chain management, such as forming cross-functional teams and reevaluating current supply chain networks.
