Aspirus Health Takes Home Inaugural Supply Chain Award for Digital Excellence in Healthcare

Aspirus Health Receives GHX’s 2023 Supply Chains of Distinction Award

Aspirus Health has been recognized as one of the top-performing hospitals and health systems in North America for their supply chain operations in 2023. They received the inaugural 2023 Supply Chains of Distinction Award from Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX), a leading organization in the healthcare supply chain industry.

Stephen Spencer, Vice President & Chief Supply Chain Officer at Aspirus Health, expressed gratitude for the recognition from GHX, noting that GHX has been a valuable partner in helping modernize and optimize their supply chain operations. The award is based on a set of “perfect order” metrics that measure the percentage of PO lines sent across the GHX Exchange that are touchless and fully automated from purchase through payment.

Spencer commended his team for embracing technological opportunities and delivering efficiencies and service levels that care providers depend on. This recognition reflects Aspirus Health’s leadership in providing quality healthcare beyond just clinical services.

Tina Vatanka Murphy, president and CEO of GHX, highlighted that organizations like Aspirus Health are redefining supply chain excellence and setting new standards for healthcare supply chains of the future. By embracing digital and data transformation, these organizations are contributing to the sustainability of healthcare and making a positive impact on patients and families.

The recipients of this year’s Supply Chains of Distinction Award will be honored at the 2024 GHX Summit in Austin, TX, taking place from May 13-16, 2024. The full list of 2023 winners can be found on GHX’s website.
