LOUISVILLE, Colo., Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GHX is inviting its member community to submit nominations for trading partners they feel have the greatest impact on the healthcare supply chain, enabling true cost reductions, increasing the efficiency of shared processes and supporting growth in this challenging economy.

  • Engaging critical business areas across organizations in supply chain advancements
  • Collaborating with trading partners to achieve mutual benefit from supply chain improvements
  • Facilitating efficient and cost-effective business transactions for trading partners

  • U.S. Healthcare Provider of the Year: Small to Mid-sized Organization
  • U.S. Healthcare Provider of the Year: Large Organization
  • Canadian Healthcare Provider of the Year
  • Most Improved Healthcare Provider

"During this critical time in the healthcare industry, trading partners must find ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs not only within their own four walls, but also in their interactions with one another," said Derek Smith, executive vice president, Marketing and Product Management, GHX. "This year's GHXcellence Awards recognize those organizations that have made considerable business process and technology advancements to improve operational and financial performance throughout the supply chain. We encourage the GHX community to nominate providers and suppliers that are leaders in this effort so we can not only honor their achievements, but also share best practices that can benefit the industry as a whole."
