SIG is working to benchmark a definition of healthcare supply chain transparency and would appreciate your insights on the following proposed definition. Additionally, if you have any thought leadership to share on the topic, please include that in your response.
Do you agree that healthcare supply chain transparency can be defined as follows? If not, how would you define?
Supply chain transparency in healthcare is visibility to product information from the point of patient care back through the healthcare supply chain through the manufacturer. Information that is visible includes clinical selection criteria, patient outcomes, reimbursement, demand signals, inventory levels, product numbering and uniform product descriptions along with standard classification, clear pricing, and terms related to products utilized in providing patient care.
