TEMPE, AZ - March 23, 2017 - Dr. Anne Snowdon, WIN Academic Chair, presented a Global Collaborative Strategy to Advance Supply Chain Transformation in Health Systems at the CAPS-Health Sector Research Consortium (HSRC) Research Dissemination Conference 2017 hosted by the W. P. Carey School of Business, Arizona State University.
The presentation focussed on improving patient safety and performance by leveraging supply chain innovation to proactively reduce the risk of medical error. Mobilizing supply chain best practices to track health products and processes to patient outcomes can significantly reduce medical error, increase health system sustainability and drive economic growth for North American companies.
The concept of supply chain in healthcare is not well understood, or developed, in most healthcare systems. The CAPS-HSRC Research Dissemination Conference brings together supply management leaders in the health sector to discuss shared challenges and opportunities, and exchange ideas across borders. Key leaders and partners of the World Health Innovation Network were in attendance.
The World Health Innovation Network (WIN) is based at the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor, under the leadership of world renowned researcher Dr. Anne Snowdon. WIN is committed to developing new knowledge and spreading the lessons of supply chain innovation with our global networks to achieve sustainable, higher-quality, patient-centred health systems.
