In the past, administrators of health systems saw the supply chain as something that was primarily a cost, and the goal was to reduce those costs as much as possible. However, more recently, health care providers are starting to see the supply chain as something that can add value to patient care. 

On this episode of Medically Necessary, Matt Blois brings on Gary Allen, vice president  of supply chain excellence at Ryder, and Garrison White, Ryder’s senior director of continuous improvement. The three discuss how logistics providers like Ryder play an indirect but still major role in adding value to patient care. 

Allen and White explain how Ryder provides those strategic solutions for value-based supply chain management and how that value translates downstream into places like hospitals, medical suppliers and eventually directly to patients.
