Medical Device Manufacturers and Hospitals Collaborate for Change

October 25, 2011 | Blog | 0 comments

In an earlier post, viagra canada I referenced a white paper that I was writing on collaboration within the healthcare supply chain.  I am happy to say that it is now available (click here).  During its development, I had the opportunity to speak with representatives from both sides of the buy-sell equation –  hospitals and medical device manufacturers – on the challenges they are facing and how collaboration both within their organizations and between trading partners can yield significant benefits for everyone in terms of greater operational efficiencies and lower costs.

Many thanks to GHX for allowing me to research and write this piece and to all of the individuals that provided their input on this critical issue: Gene Kirtser from ROi, Dale Locklair from McLeod Health, Carol Stone from C.R. Bard, Nancy LeMaster from BJC Healthcare and B. Scott McCallum from Boston Scientific.
