High Performing Supply Chains: The road to Best 50

Thursday, March 22, 2018

The strategic value of supply chain in tackling costs, eliminating waste and driving efficiency has never been more important — or in the spotlight. GHX honors the Best 50 U.S. healthcare organizations for improving operational performance and driving down costs through supply chain automation each year at the GHX Supply Chain Summit. The competition to win gets a little more challenging each year as winners achieve new levels of efficiency, making the accomplishment more noteworthy with each passing year.

Top performing providers set a high standard for supply chain performance. To land in the Best 50 category demonstrates exceptional work from supply chain, finance and materials management teams. We are excited to recognize these organizations for their work in achieving remarkable metrics for: 

  • Lowest exception rates for: Price, SKU and UOM per PO lines
  • Maximizing automation
  • Utilization of the GHX Exchange
  • Trading partner connections 

There are many organizations that are working toward this achievement that are not on the list — yet. As any winner will say, this is a journey that starts with a strategy, takes hard work and is not completed overnight. 

The Summit is the ideal opportunity to connect with and hear from these industry leaders to learn more about the strategy that led to their success. Four of the Best 50 winners will be speaking at the upcoming Summit on a variety of timely topics including data management, disaster recovery, data standards and more.

  • Aspirus
  • Harris Health System
  • Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS)
  • Stanford Health Care
