Supply Chain Week 2022

An efficient supply chain doesn’t exist outside of the people who make it strong. Please join Owens & Minor in our celebration of Supply Chain Week 2022 by thanking the healthcare supply chain professionals who contribute to quality patient care every day.

National Health Care Supply Chain Week, October 2-8, 2022, presents us with an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the supply chain professionals who support health care organizations and communities each and every day.

Now more than ever, the healthcare industry and the general public understand the value of an efficient supply chain. And that supply chain is powered by dedicated professionals who keep the operations and businesses running.

"Thank you to our supply chain business partners for tirelessly putting their heart and passion into orchestrating and managing a critical part of our nation’s healthcare infrastructure to keep moving healthcare forward."
-Ed Pesicka, President & CEO, Owens & Minor

SMART card

Up-To-Date Supply Chain Disruption Alert Communication for Supply Chain Leaders

The SMART Card features First Alerts, the most critical information that may impact distribution service levels. Secondly, it provides a Supplier Snapshot which are suppliers providing below-standard inbound fill rates (98%) and inbound lead times (10 days). It also provides a report of the top 15 SKUs that are impacting service levels for our customers, with suggested product substitutions. Lastly, the SMART Card provides overall market and global supply chain updates that Owens & Minor continuously monitors.

Pandemic Preparedness Library

This resource library contains a wide variety of tools, resources, and checklists to aid any healthcare facility with pandemic preparedness. Preparedness is not a time-limited activity, but rather an ongoing process that must be supported by the facility’s executive leadership. These resources are meant to serve as a comprehensive reference for any preparedness needs. With proper planning, healthcare facilities and providers can respond favorably to future threats from pathogens.
