There’s no doubt that the healthcare sector has changed a lot in the last decade. Not only has healthcare reform changed the playing field for American healthcare providers, but a spate of mergers and acquisitions have changed the players, as well. In this new competitive environment, healthcare organizations can’t take their supply chains for granted anymore. Many of the most successful healthcare providers are taking a more strategic approach to their supply chains, integrating them into their operations in a way that makes them more responsive and collaborative than ever before in an effort to drive down costs while remaining competitive.
