Huntington Hospital has been named a recipient of ECRI Institute’s sixth annual Healthcare Supply Chain Achievement Award. The prestigious award honors healthcare organizations that demonstrate excellence in overall spend management and in adopting best practice solutions in its supply chain processes.
“We are honored to receive this designation from ECRI Institute,” said Jim Noble, executive vice president, chief financial officer/provider strategy, Huntington Hospital. “This recognition is the culmination of years of effort by our hospital’s operations team implementing best practice solutions to advance our supply chain efforts. I am proud to work with such a dedicated team.”
Each year, the Healthcare Supply Chain Achievement Award recognizes hospitals and health systems for their comprehensive and effective use of ECRI Institute’s PriceGuide™ and SELECTplus® supply and capital procurement advisory programs. This year’s winners were selected out of nearly 3,000 members nationwide. Winners are determined using a two-part selection process that is both quantitative and subjective. The evaluation process was based on a study and analysis of each organization’s purchase order history and supply chain initiatives that included ongoing and consistent spend management and market analytics efforts for all medical devices, including capital medical equipment, supplies, physician preference items, service contracts, reagents, and others.
