The Healthcare Hub

The Healthcare Hub blog focuses on how greater collaboration and visibility across the supply chain can improve both clinical and financial performance in healthcare. Working with hospitals, manufacturers, distributors and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) in North America and Europe, GHX provides a global perspective on issues such as healthcare reform, standards adoption, automation, e-commerce and demand planning, among others.
