Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium

Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium

The rising cost of health care demands new models of both delivery of care, and administration of resources. Every dollar saved through supply management hits the bottom line for hospitals and health practitioners.

The Health Sector Research Consortium (HSRC) was established by  Eugene Schneller at Arizona State University in the W. P. Carey School of Business, and continues as an Industry Advisory Group at CAPS Research, to address this issue and other evolving needs of the healthcare supply chain. The consortium brings together health organizations, academic researchers, and cross-industry leaders for the strategic management of the health sector.

CAPS-HSRC corporate members include integrated delivery networks, hospitals, group purchasing organizations, distributors, health information technology companies, and manufacturers of health care supplies, who believe that the health sector can achieve improved efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability through collaboration and improved performance by all supply chain participants.

CAPS Research HSRC Members work to:

  • Confront and prepare for challenges facing the field
  • Guide the CAPS-HSRC toward cutting-edge research in health care supply management practice and policy
  • Seek avenues to facilitate knowledge transfer from other industries into the health sector
  • Create best practices and valuable information that impact performance

CAPS Research is a non-profit organization founded in 1986, jointly sponsored by Fortune 500 member companies, the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, and the Institute for Supply Management® (ISM®).
