Intermountain Healthcare Honored for Supply Chain Management:

Press Release

March 14, 2013

The ECRI Institute has named Intermountain Healthcare among the eight winners of its annual Healthcare Supply Chain Achievement Award. The presentation honors organizations that demonstrate excellence in overall spend management and in adopting best practice solutions in their supply chain processes.

Intermountain’s supply chain organization was recognized for efforts to reduce supply costs by specifying, purchasing and distributing supplies wisely, as well as effectively providing a range of support services. These efforts saved an estimated $55 million in 2012.

“As a non-profit healthcare provider, Intermountain is committed to finding and implementing strategies that will enable us to offer our patients the highest quality care at the lowest sustainable cost,” said Brent Johnson, Intermountain’s vice president of supply chain organization and chief purchasing officer.

Intermountain was selected from nearly 2,500 hospitals and health. The ECRI Institute is an independent nonprofit that researches the best approaches to improving patient care.

“The winning supply chain teams reflect practices that will enhance their value and role in the overall strategy of their organizations, helping to reduce utilization and readmissions while achieving better outcomes,” said Jennifer Myers, ECRI Institute's vice president of SELECT health technology services.

Other winners this year included: Catholic Healthcare East, Fletcher Allen Partners, Health Care Authority for Baptist Health, Mountain States Health Alliance, University of California San Francisco Medical Center, WellStar Health System and Yankee Alliance, Inc.
