Gartner Announces its 2011 Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25

Cardinal Health captures No. 1 slot in third-annual healthcare supply chain rankings


Owens & Minor rounded out the top 5 ranking. Its drop from the top spot was driven more by the relative strength of the top four companies than any specific weakness at O&M. Its decline can be primarily attributed to a slight decrease in inventory turns and a larger drop in peer recognition over the previous year. However, recognition from analysts increased over the prior year.

 

Gartner advises companies aspiring to a Top 25 ranking to seek out leaders and learn key value chain lessons from Top 25 organizations.

 

"Build a supply chain vision and strategy that connects your current and aspirational supply chain capabilities to the pursuit of high-quality, cost-effective patient care," Blake said. "Ensure your organization can sustain the journey to more patient-centric value chain strategies by establishing the execution discipline and governance to maintain consistent momentum for your change initiatives."
