The recognition is based on Rush’s commitment to building and executing a supply chain strategy that removes unnecessary waste, drives greater efficiencies and, as a result, raises the quality of patient care. The department received notification of the honor in April.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a GHX best 50 for 2020,” says Jeremy Strong, MS, vice president of supply chain and hospital operations at Rush University Medical Center. “It shows the commitment and dedication of the entire Rush supply chain team.”
Honorees are selected from a pool of more than 4,100 provider organizations connected to the GHX digital trading platform that score highest in areas such as maximizing document automation, exchange utilization and trading partner connections during the 2020 calendar year.
“Every year, GHX honors a select group of providers that are setting a high bar for health care supply chain excellence,” says Bruce Johnson, president and CEO of GHX. “This year’s honorees stand out given how immensely challenging COVID-19 was for the global health care supply chain. Rush University Medical Center showed an especially deep commitment and innovative approach to removing waste, driving efficiencies and raising the quality of patient care when it was even more critical.”
