02 Jun Standardization and Supply Continuity
Awareness of the importance of standardization of essential supplies is growing with the recent impacts of Covid-19. This has exposed a current lack of standards across the industry which is facing challenges with supply continuity and visibility.
Improving how the industry communicates supply data optimizes visibility and enables providers to proactively avoid supply disruptions or identify alternative products when facing a shortage or recall. Continuity initiatives across systems will help to streamline product demand and improve response time and patient outcomes.
