An Engineering Approach to Improving Hospital Supply Chains

Scott Hsiang-Jen Cheng & Graham Whittemore

Research Fest 2008

Utilizing supply chain best practices from industries outside of healthcare; a supply chain has been designed and modeled that reduces hospital supply chain costs. The supply chain is centered on patient-specific kits delivered from an offsite warehouse to hospital bedsides. Effective implementation requires that each individual hospital segment their products to determine which items are appropriate for the supply chain.

I enjoyed the presentation. You were just about to get into the meat of the paper and you cut it short. It looks like Jen's presenetation was not done in full. Is the Offsite warehouse mananged by the distributor or is it owned by the hospital ?
