The Healthcare Supply Chain Achievement Award recognizes members of ECRI’s portfolio of supply chain services who demonstrate exemplary utilization of services across the procurement lifecycle, including budgeting, benchmarking, technology assessment and strategic development.

More than 3,000 U.S. hospitals and health systems are members of ECRI Institute’s strategic sourcing and supply chain programs.
