90% of industry leaders are aligned on their top supply chain challenges and the best means of overcoming them.
Healthcare and supply chain leaders usually agree on what their problems are, because problems are obvious. Where they normally diverge is solutions. But we were pleasantly surprised by seeing some consensus as we perused this week's news stories.
Let's start with the bad news. (We know, we know. You're running through a dozen topics and wondering which one we mean this time. Not a great place to be mentally. Hence the deceptive lightheartedness of this week's cartoon animal GIF selection.)
Provider finances aren't going to be helped by ongoing supply chain disruption that's only going to worsen in the last few weeks of 2021. Retail demand is going to pull resources away from healthcare's sourcing needs.
Excuse us if this sounds redundant, but... sustainable practices are essential to the long-term sustainability of a practice. This has been proven through analyses across every industry, and its implementation in supply chain has obvious benefits. If you don't plan for the future, you'll have a hard time surviving the future.
