Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium - 2014 Annual Research Dissemination Conference

2014 Annual Research Dissemination Conference

As reform in the U.S. health care system moves forward there is acknowledgment of the complexities and inter-connectedness of care delivery. Both human and non-human components require attention and study. A growing consensus is that health care workers need expanded knowledge, must embrace collaboration and understand the overlapping importance of high quality patient care, reduced costs and improved population health across the continuum of care. All who directly or indirectly impact patients are expected to incorporate evidence-based medicine, patient-centeredness and necessary innovation in their roles. This session is designed to build an understanding of efforts in a new area, “delivery science” and factors related to innovation and management, inclusive of the roles played by supply chain organizations.
