11 health systems win supply chain excellence award

The Emergency Care Research Institute honored 11 health systems with the Supply Chain Excellence Award on Aug. 3. None of 2022's winners were on last year's list

To win, health systems and hospitals must "demonstrate exemplary utilization of services across the procurement lifecycle, including budgeting, benchmarking, technology assessment and strategic development," according to ECRI. Other factors included health systems' 2021 decisions on capital medical devices, supplies, physician preference items, service contracts and reagents. 

The institute evaluated about 3,000 health systems and $128 billion worth of supply chain spending for this list, which is in its 11th year. 

Through a two-part quantitative and subjective process, the ECRI bestowed the following health systems with the award:

1. Broward Health (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)

2. Children's Health (Irving, Texas)

3. Jackson Health System (Miami)

4. JPS Health Network (Fort Worth, Texas)

5. Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, Ohio)

8. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston) 

9. United Health Services Hospitals (Binghamton, N.Y.)

10. Universal Health Services (King of Prussia, Pa.)
