How we did it

Modern Healthcare - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Mod­ern Health­care’s Sur­vey of Ex­ec­u­tive Opin­ions on Sup­ply Chain Is­sues, the re­sults of which are pub­lished here, re­placed the an­nual Group Pur­chas­ing Or­ga­ni­za­tion Sur­vey this year.

Rather than sur­vey­ing the GPOs them­selves, Mod­ern Health­care sur­veyed health­care ex­ec­u­tives on their sup­ply-chain chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties given the grow­ing im­por­tance of manag­ing sup­ply costs in to­day’s health­care en­vi­ron­ment.

The 25-ques­tion sur­vey opened April 30 and closed on June 29. It was open to ex­ec­u­tives of any health­care provider or­ga­ni­za­tion that pur­chases med­i­cal sup­plies and ser­vices. Some 170 ex­ec­u­tives re­sponded to the sur­vey. Of those re­sponses, 159 were an­a­lyzed to pro­duce the re­sults. Eleven re­sponses were in­valid or in­el­i­gi­ble. For a break­down of the types of or­ga­ni­za­tions rep­re­sented in the sur­vey, see the chart on p. 28.

Mod­ern Health­care ex­tends its thanks to all the ex­ec­u­tives who par­tic­i­pated in this year’s sur­vey.
