National Healthcare Supply Chain Week, sponsored by the Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management, recognizes supply chain professionals who work to improve patient care while reducing costs for their organization. This year, the celebration takes place Oct. 6-12.

This year's theme is "advancing healthcare through clinical integration." 

The theme aims to highlight the importance of increasing strategic collaboration opportunities between clinical staff and suppliers in healthcare organizations.

AHRMM is encouraging hospitals to submit photos, infographics, videos or articles of their staff members embodying this year's theme, which will be featured on AHRMM's website, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube pages throughout the week.

The website also has a list of 16 ways hospital leaders can honor their supply chain staff this week.
