Methodist Health System has been recognized by health care supply chain leader Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) as a Best 50 health care provider. For the past 14 years, GHX’s annual Best 50 award has spotlighted the top North American hospitals and health systems based on their proven ability to improve operational performance while driving down costs through supply chain automation.

Methodist is the only health system in the Nebraska to make the GHX Best 50.

Honorees were selected from a pool of more than 4,100 provider organizations that are connected to the GHX digital trading platform and scored highest in 2021 in areas such as maximizing document automation, Exchange utilization and trading partner connections.

“Methodist Health System has worked tirelessly over the last five years, putting an emphasis on nationally adopted benchmark metrics,” said Karen Kresnik, director supply chain for Methodist. “This award is representative of the team’s diligence in improving supply chain processes and driving efficiencies. Their efforts allow Methodist providers to fulfill their mission of showing patients The Meaning of Care.”

Methodist’s clinically integrated supply chain supports all affiliates, ensuring that quality patient care is delivered in a timely fashion. Quality patient outcomes and continuous improvement are at the forefront of supply chain efforts. The supply chain team is composed of information systems, value analysis, strategic sourcing, procurement and logistics.

The GHX Best 50 honorees have once again proven that by tapping into the expertise of supply chain teams, delivering outstanding care at lower costs is possible,” said Bruce Johnson, president and CEO of GHX. “Even as COVID-19 continues to create a challenging environment for health care providers, organizations like Methodist have created greater efficiencies and eliminated waste, ultimately helping to deliver more value for patients.”

The recipients will be recognized during an awards ceremony at the GHX Summit 22 on May 11.
