Gartner, Inc. has released its ninth annual Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 ranking, with Intermountain Healthcare taking the top spot for the second straight year.

Gartner said the rankings are put together to recognise companies across the healthcare value chain that demonstrate leadership in improving human life at sustainable costs.

“The importance of supply chain leadership has manifested itself in a very literal way in 2017," said Stephen Meyer, Research Director at Gartner.

“A number of supply chains made changes at the top of their organisations that resulted in radical shifts in strategy. In many cases, these shifts seemed to be very myopic and siloed rather than focusing on the outside-in strategies that are important for moving healthcare collectively forward.

“Conversely, supply chains with strong leadership, like those recognised in our 2017 ranking, are embracing external partnership along with exploring the benefits that new abilities, like digital technology and advanced analytics, can bring."

Explaining its decision, Gartner said Intermountain Healthcare has a history of using supply chain strategically to support its corporate mission.

“New developments from the leadership team led by the new CEO, Dr. Marc Harrison, continue to demonstrate the relationship of supply chain to Intermountain Healthcare's mission of ‘Helping People Live the Healthiest Lives Possible,’” said Gartner in a release.

“Supply chain is an integral part of the shared support services foundation that helps connect its change from a geographic structure of care to one based on two segments: a community care group focused on wellness and primary care and a specialty care group focused on inpatient and specialty care.”

Mayo Foundation returned to the number two position in the 2017 ranking, with Cardinal Health moving down a spot to number three. McKesson and Johnson & Johnson were ranked fourth and fifth respectively.
