Top Three Healthcare Supply Chain Executives Challenge Industry
Date:4/20/2011

DALLAS, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior executives from the top three healthcare organizations on Gartner's "The Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 for 2010"* revealed strategies their companies leveraged to become industry supply chain leaders during this morning's keynote panel discussion at the 2011 GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit.

Craig Smith, president and CEO, Owens & Minor; Michelle DeJonge, vice president, Global Supply Chain, Medical Device and Diagnostics, Johnson & Johnson; and Vance Moore, president and CEO, Resource Optimization & Innovation (ROi), the supply chain division for Sisters of Mercy Health System, challenged more than 600 healthcare industry leaders to ruthlessly eliminate cost and aggressively embrace change.

Hussain Mooraj, managing vice president, Gartner, moderated the panel, and counseled the audience that a driver for "The Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 for 2010" list is to help shift the industry from its traditional supply chain perspective to a value chain perspective. He added that the five pillars of that healthcare value chain are patient focus, collaboration, network visibility, dynamic supply and change management.

"It starts with the leadership," said Craig Smith of Owens & Minor. "It's not about winners and losers but about delivering more efficient patient care.  We worked hard over the past two years to focus on efficiency and productivity. There's a heightened sense of urgency and we are working to push the envelope and take the reins in proving to other industries that we can drive efficiency." Smith added that value used to be defined by product cost; today it is more about service provided.

Owens & Minor placed first among the Gartner "Top 25," which each year recognizes healthcare organizations that focus on the healthcare value chain's pursuit of high-quality care at optimal cost, while Johnson & Johnson was second and Sisters of Mercy Health Syst
