Here’s a peek into what we’ve been able to accomplish.

SUPPLY CHAIN & PHARMACY

68% of product disruptions come from poor demand signaling. During the pandemic, Premier conducted nearly a dozen surveys on supply chain, payment and more to get a jump on these indicators.

 

Our primary research helped us understand early gaps, advocate for favorable policy, guide providers’ decision-making and innovate solutions. The information from these surveys kept governments informed in real time of the on-the-ground situation, and ultimately led to the creation of private sector initiatives that accelerated product delivery to providers with the greatest need.

TECHNOLOGY & DATA

COVID-19 exposed weaknesses in the IT systems and technology adoption across the various players in healthcare.

 

Premier has been leveraging cutting-edge technology to help healthcare organizations identify potential COVID-19 cases at the earliest possible moment. Our efforts have enabled providers to prepare clinically and operationally for a surge, and direct local and national responses so that communities can stay open.

CARE DELIVERY & OPERATIONS

The pandemic rapidly shifted the way providers had to deliver care, from symptom monitoring to virtual consults. With its early insights on the market, Premier provided guidance on new trends, enabled the sharing of best practices among members and advocated for providers’ needs in D.C.
