Each year the Healthcare Supply Chain Network (HSCN) hosts the annual HSCN conference, the preeminent event for healthcare supply chain professionals and leaders with the goal of advancing healthcare supply chain excellence. This year’s conference is being held May 14-16 2018 at the Delta Hotels Toronto Airport & Conference Centre.
In Canada, there remains a significant opportunity for improvement within healthcare supply chain management to deliver cost control, efficiency, automation and positive patient outcomes through the use of technologies that are heavily relied on in private sector markets such as retail.
These opportunities have been spelled out in reports such as the McKinsey Report, Strength in Unity: The promise of Global Standards in Healthcare and the Advancing Healthcare in Ontario: Optimizing the healthcare Supply Chain – A New Model from the Healthcare Sector Supply Chain Strategy Expert Panel, which provide a detailed roadmap for the adoption of Global Standards including the use of supply chain management technologies and identification marks and symbols within internal processes. Commport’s suite of services including EDI processing, GDSN data synchronization and cloud based business intelligence and analytics provide the foundation on which these promises can be fulfilled.
Alongside Commport’s work with our customers to deliver on these promises, Commport is excited to attend and exhibit at HSCN2018. The sessions this year include topics such as Value Based Procurement, the role that Data can play to help identify and address supply chain problems, and global case studies that focus on driving value and innovation across the continuum of care.
Additionally, this year, Commport’s customer BCCSS is being awarded with the HCN Supply Chain Organization of the Year award. The award will be presented to BCCSS as a part of the HSCN conference.
