“Congratulations are due to all the members of our supply chain. They deserve recognition for all the work that they do to make ours a truly collaborative health care system,” says Michael Prokopis, Senior VP, Supply Chain at Steward Health Care.
“We strongly believe that our partners are the most efficient, most innovative health care providers in the country, and that’s not based on personal feeling,” says Carl Natenstedt, CEO and cofounder of Z5 Inventory. “One of the great things about our platform is that our partners can see all their supply chain savings and inventory efficiency data in one place. We know precisely how impressive they are.”
Z5 Inventory evaluated hundreds of medical supply and pharmacy inventory projects and reviewed data captured in Z5’s mobile app and online dashboard over the last year. The data reveals the most effective inventory projects and supply chain efficiency patterns leading to the greatest cost-saving results. The awards criteria focused on a few key inventory management principles: systemwide supply visibility, supply chain resiliency, and budgetary efficiency.
The final award will be given away to a group of supply chain professionals recognized for their exceptional communication and innovation. The industry leaders who met that criteria this year are:
5. Certified-Gold Supply Chain Professionals
– Andria Davis & Team (VCU Health)
– Mario Jones (Baylor Scott & White Health)
– Sean Kester (Baylor Scott & White Health)
– Ernesto Schaeuffler (Yale New Haven Health)
– Seth Washispack (HonorHealth)
“Each of these nominees deserves more recognition than they’re currently getting, because they have all achieved tremendous supply chain successes in the past year, which has been a difficult year for supply chain,” adds Mr. Natenstedt. “This is just our small way of supporting our partners’ inventory optimization efforts.”
Since 2015, the Z5 Inventory mobile app and online platform has helped health care providers optimize their inventories by using real-time supply data and industry-leading analytics.
