Strategic Partnership Roles and Responsibilities
The supply chain directors at the medical center level are each assigned to strategic sourcing categories where they are expected to meet target savings in the respective category. Sourcing categories are compartmentalized into nine different categories, of which three categories focus on physician preference. The UC Health Supply Chain and Procurement team should see a predominant migration towards system, long-term contracts and full utilization of a systemwide spend database. Additional strategic partners may also include department operational and clinical staff members, physicians and any other key stakeholders at the medical center level.
