More than 3,000 U.S. hospitals and health systems are members of ECRI’s strategic sourcing and supply chain programs. ECRI has analyzed nearly $60 billion in supply and capital spend over the past year.

“This year’s winners have faced post-COVID supply chain challenges, but their adherence to using data analytics, best practices, and leadership engagement has enabled them to overcome obstacles and make strategic, evidence-based decisions without sacrificing quality or patient care,” said Tim Browne, vice president, supply chain solutions, ECRI. “We are proud to partner with them and contribute to their success.”

ECRI will be honoring the winners with individual awards programs as well as publicly at the Association of Healthcare Resource and Materials Management (AHRMM) Conference and Exhibition.
