National Healthcare Supply Chain Week: Partnerships Powered by TMS

Drones deliver medical supplies during National Healthcare Supply Chain Week.

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 joins The Association for Health Care Resource & Materials Management (AHRMM) in celebrating the tireless efforts of these individuals who form the backbone of the healthcare supply chain. This week recognizes their significant contributions toward innovative solutions that support healthcare organizations and communities.
MercuryGate aims to simplify the healthcare supply chain so providers can focus on what they do best – delivering top-notch patient care by facilitating more streamlined logistics in the healthcare supply chain.

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

An efficient healthcare supply chain is a lynchpin for patient care and safety. It empowers healthcare organizations to track inventory in real-time, ensuring that essential items like medications, equipment, and personal protective equipment (PPE) are readily available when needed.

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

This year’s National Healthcare Supply Chain Week theme, “The Power of Partnerships,” encapsulates the transformative impact of collaborative relationships within the healthcare supply chain.

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.
