Nominate noteworthy physicians for recognition by emailing us reasons how and why a supply chain-focused physician in your organization deserves the spotlight – no more than a couple of paragraphs are needed. Please describe how and why he or she understands, respects, and engages the Supply Chain Management department and its leaders as a bridge between clinical, financial and operational success.For your nomination to qualify, please comply with the following rules:
  1. All nominations must be original and exclusive to HPN and not have been submitted – either original or edited – to any other publication or online media outlet currently or within the previous year.

  3. Any nominated physician (or nominator) must be willing to share relevant basic financial details with our readers – specifically annual revenues, annual expenses and annual purchasing volume.
  4. Only physicians are eligible for consideration
Submit nominations to [email protected].

HPN will announce the winners in the July issue.

Physicians Understanding, Respecting and Engaging Supply Chain

We want to recognize physicians who have made solid contributions to supply chain operations - activities, practices and thinking - and we want to further solidify and strengthen the clinical bonds between physicians and supply chain professionals. We’re witnessing more doctors and surgeons participating in supply chain operations with more depth than ever before, Physicians Understanding, Respecting and Engaging Supply Chain professionals or "P.U.R.E." This award goes to these docs who trust Supply Chain to enhance their clinical practices and the patient care they deliver. PURE Award for Supply Chain-Focused MDs
