Closing the Gap! What Can Healthcare Learn from Retail

Healthcare cost continues to rise at an alarming rate, growing well ahead of inflation.  In order to explore opportunities to improve the efficiency and reduce costs a gap analysis that compares the differences between healthcare and retail was conducted at the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Logistics (CIHL).  We compare and contrast the education and training practices for supply chain professionals in each sector, the use of Collaborative Planning Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) and the use of actual usage data at the last leg of the supply chain as a means to enhance automated inventory control strategies.
