Hospital Supply Chain Management in the COVID Era

Managing the bottom line while in a pandemic is difficult.  That goes without saying.  Healthcare leaders remain challenged to find ways to streamline their supply chain while creating efficiencies in their materials management.

Finding supplies that were once easy to source is now more difficult given the impact of COVID-19. Increased demand, inventory and operational strain, and supply chain disruptions will likely continue to affect the availability of drugs and supplies.  These challenges can also place operational demands on the department, which exacerbate the need for specialists in the field.  On average, supply chain is the second largest expense for healthcare providers, after employee salaries and benefits.
