LOUISVILLE, Colo., Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Seventeen of the 19 medical-surgical suppliers and healthcare providers ranked in the Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 for 2011 work with GHX to automate and optimize their supply chains and manage data quality, helping them achieve high-quality patient care at optimal economic cost. The number represents 89 percent of the medical-surgical suppliers and providers recognized by Gartner in the Top 25 ranking.

Healthcare organizations are chosen for inclusion on the annual list based on quantitative analysis across publicly available metrics as well as a qualitative assessment based on a poll of leading industry experts and Gartner analysts.

  • Cardinal Health
  • Mercy
  • BD
  • Mayo Clinic
  • Owens & Minor
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Intermountain Healthcare
  • Abbott
  • Cleveland Clinic
  • AmerisourceBergen
  • Boston Scientific
  • McKesson
  • BJC HealthCare
  • Baxter
  • UPMC
  • Alcon
  • Kaiser Permanente

"The Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 ranking has been Gartner's mechanism to recognize excellence in the healthcare value chain, and the role it plays in enabling reduced cost and improved quality," Gartner said in its analysis. "Analyzing our list this year, we see a ranking that demonstrates the importance of maintaining focus on both internal excellence and external collaboration as the vehicles to drive industry wide change."

Bruce Johnson, president and CEO of GHX, said the Gartner report highlights the impact a community can have on improving the cost and quality of healthcare.

"The GHX Global Network, which connects more than 5,500 hospitals to the suppliers from which they purchase the majority of their supplies, has the power to make change faster," Johnson said. "It can move quickly to adopt new solutions, and our 17 customers recognized in Gartner's research have demonstrated the impact that can have."
