There are areas in health care facilities that require specific environmental controls and operational procedures to ensure safety, such as patient isolation rooms, surgical suites and compounding areas.
In the past, hospital supply chain was commonly viewed as the department responsible for ensuring adequate supplies were on hand. But today, as margins continue to shrink and the emphasis on clinical outcomes increases, health care providers are focusing more sharply on supply chain as a collaborative and strategic function.
