Hospitals are facing rapidly increasing financial pressures, and  continue to seek more cost- and time-saving methods to acquire supplies. One area of increasing interest is the hospital or healthcare system’s supply chain model; in particular, whether greater efficiencies can be achieved  by maximizing the share of spending through a commercial distributor, or by increasing the share of purchases directly from manufacturers.

The Hospital Procurement Study compares the activities and related internal process costs associated with purchasing directly from a manufacturer to those associated with purchases using a distributor.
