Congrats to Infor customer Greenville Health System for being named 2013 Supply Chain Management Department of the Year by Healthcare Purchasing News.
"With Infor, we've built a more collaborative, smarter supply chain that's helped us improve our bottom line," said John Mateka, executive director, Greenville Health System. "In fact, we were just named the 2013 Supply Chain Management Department of the Year by Healthcare Purchasing News due to our strong leadership, vision, and execution of a transformational plan."
Healthcare Purchasing News announces Greenville Health's award on its August cover. The article begins: "Deep in the breadbasket of America's Bible Belt, the C-suite at the five-hospital Greenville (SC) Health System clearly viewed Supply Chain as a critical piece of a larger puzzle that when completed would display a panoramic vista for patients on what a successful multi-hospital system looks like. Back in 2006, however, Supply Chain struggled to stitch itself together as a mini puzzle within the larger one. But it found ways to deliver, earning the 2013 Supply Chain Department of the Year award." Read the Greenville Health System cover story.
In a Q&A sidebar, Mateka shares some frank insights into his team's challenges, goals and bright ideas that made them so successful in their SCM transformation.
