Survey suggests better supply chain management supports patient safety

March 2, 2017

A new Cardinal Health survey suggests better supply chain management supports patient safety, according to an article on the Yahoo Finance website.

A quarter of hospital staff with "good" processes have seen or heard of expired product being used on a patient and 18 percent have seen or heard of a patient being harmed due to a lack of necessary supplies.

 "Our survey found that many hospitals are experiencing patient safety issues that could be prevented through supply chain improvements," Shaden Marzouk, chief medical officer at Cardinal, said in the article.

The survey revealed nearly one-third of respondents haven't implemented a new inventory management system in at least six years, and another 25 percent don't know if it's ever been done.
