Supply assurance: working to ensure there's no shortage of it

In today's global market, we want to give providers confidence that critical supplies and essential medications are accessible when needed in delivering high-quality patient care. It's supply assurance, and it's part of our long-standing core business.

Our wealth of experience, actionable data and predictive planning helps to strengthen supply assurance. Further, our work with stakeholders focuses on improving supply chain risk mitigation as we collaborate to enhance data, increase supply visibility and expand inventory access.

Four themes keep us centered and are the pillars of our supply chain assurance efforts: insights, access, enablement and advocacy. Learn more about our supply assurance strategy.
