Baptist Health South Florida Named to Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 list for 2015
Gartner, Inc. has named Baptist Health South Florida to its “Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 for 2015” list. The ranking, now in its seventh year, recognizes companies across the healthcare value chain that demonstrates leadership in improving patient care and lowering costs. “Our team works hard each day to build an organizational infrastructure that focuses on more than just commercial transaction costs. We seek to focus on the total cost of ownership, including care quality,” said Suzzanne Thomson-Quintero, vice-president of supply chain management services for Baptist Health South Florida. “We are proud to be recognized and are committed to our patients, physicians and suppliers.”
“Alignment to patient outcomes, company strategy and future revenue models in healthcare are the key themes for 2015,” writes Gartner*. “We see innovation coming from mature supply chains that have stable organizations and strong talent. These organizations are most ready to successfully lead in consolidation and collaboration initiatives that will advance the healthcare value chain.”
Consistent with Gartner’s Top 25 research methodologies, the Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 ranking is derived from two main analyses: quantitative measures and opinion. Quantitative measures provide a view into how companies have performed in the past, and establish proxy connections between financial health, performance and supply chain excellence. The opinion component offers an eye to value chain leadership and demonstrated supply chain performance — crucial characteristics of Gartner’s Top 25 ranking. These two components are combined into a total composite score. To read more, visit www.gartner.com.
