    As healthcare costs have risen, increased attention has been focused on the role of purchasing within hospitals. This article reviews the attributes traditionally used by purchasing managers in supplier selection and then examines the attributes currently being used within a healthcare setting. The conclusion is that even though the government and insurers have placed considerable pressure on healthcare providers to reduce costs, low price has not become a more important attribute in supplier selection than product quality, delivery, or service. Further, the research team found that, on average, suppliers are not meeting customer requirements on key supplier selection attributes.

    Despite well-documented evidence of significant competitive advantage and cost reduction resulting from supply chain management (SCM) practices, the healthcare industry has been extremely slow to embrace these practices. This article, through literature review and case studies within the healthcare industry supply chain, explores the barriers to implementation of SCM practices. These barriers include: lack of executive support; misaligned or conflicting incentives; need for data collection and performance measurement; limited education on supply chain; and inconsistent relationships with group purchasing organizations and other supply chain partners. Practical recommendations are made for hospitals and supply chain partners struggling to implement workable SCM solutions.
