As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic accelerates, global healthcare systems have become overwhelmed with their struggle to procure personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical equipment. While many people think there is a critical shortage of these products, the answer is more complicated.

On May 7, the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) and USD Supply Chain Management Institute (SCMI) hosted a timely webinar, Building a Connected Network Across the Global Healthcare Supply Chain. Joel Sutherland, SCMI managing director, moderated the meeting. 

Graeme Dykes, managing director and board chair for the Healthcare Transparency Initiative, presented a case study from Resilinc which detailed how data-driven technology (Healthcare Exchange Network) is enabling purchasing organizations around the world to connect, collaborate, locate, and trade critical supplies and equipment during COVID-19.

Attendees included students, faculty, staff, and industry partners.
