El Camino Health Recognized with GHX Supply Chains of Distinction Award

Mountain View, CA – El Camino Health has been recognized by healthcare supply chain leader Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) as part of the inaugural class of its Supply Chains of Distinction Award for 2023, which honors top performing hospitals and health systems in North America. This award honors GHX Exchange-connected provider organizations that excelled in driving best-in-class supply chain operations. El Camino Health is one of 25 medium health systems awarded for its supply chain work.

"El Camino Health is honored to be recognized by GHX as a top-performing hospital in the vital area of supply chain," said Carlos Bohorquez, chief financial officer of El Camino Health. "My thanks go to our incredible supply chain team who work tirelessly, to ensure our frontline workers have the supplies necessary to deliver high-level care to our patients every day. We are committed to achieving the highest levels of efficiency and are always looking for ways to improve patient outcomes through supply chain automation and innovation."

The award is based upon a set of "perfect order" metrics, rated as a percentage of PO lines sent across the GHX Exchange (integrated) that are touchless and completely automated, from purchase through payment. GHX has also launched a Perfect Order Dashboard featuring monthly performance metrics and rankings, helping to empower hospitals and health systems to commit to best-in-class practices around order performance throughout the year.

In years past, these awards were known as the “Best 50” and this marks the third consecutive year that El Camino Health has been recognized for supply chain excellence. This year's recipients will be honored at the 2024 GHX Summit taking place May 13-16, 2024 in Austin, TX.

"The Supply Chains of Distinction Award honors organizations that are redefining supply chain excellence and setting the standard for healthcare supply chains of the future," said Tina Vatanka Murphy, president and CEO, GHX. "By embracing digital and data transformation, organizations like El Camino Health are contributing directly to the sustainability of healthcare, making a lasting impact on the patients and families that we serve together."
