SCI in partnership with their client 3SO, a not for profit organization providing shared services to member hospitals, have been nominated as one of six finalists for the Supply Chain Innovation Award™. The case study entered for the award describes a unique and transformational supply chain model that has delivered immediate and sustainable value for the group of member hospitals: significant net savings, procurement savings, and reduction of regional inventory.

The Supply Chain Innovation AwardTMm was established in 2005 by CSCMP’s Research Strategies Committee and SupplyChainBrain to highlight and recognize the top players in the supply chain industry when it comes to innovative programs, projects, and collaboration. This global award program receives around 50 submissions each year. A panel of reviewers, consisting of members of the CSCMP Research Strategies Committee and the editorial board of SupplyChainBrain, narrow down the submissions to select the top innovative teams which then become the finalists. The winner is then determined during the CSCMP’s annual conference.

The nominated case study “Maximizing Supply Chain Value for South-Eastern Ontario Hospitals” will be presented by Lyndon Smith, CEO of 3SO and Brent Hodgson of SCI during the CSCMP’s 2015 annual conference in San Diego on September 27-30th. It will also be accessible to the CSCMP members at the Council’s website.
