The CAPS Health Sector Research Consortium (CAPS-HSRC) gathers health sector supply chain executives to explore and inspire customer-focused, end-to-end supply chain management research and leadership unique to the health industry. Members also have the opportunity to gain insight into other industries’ best practices, and, in turn, influence some of the world’s top strategic supply management executives with thought leadership from the health industry.
HSRC was founded in 2004 at Arizona State University to bring academic research on supply management to health sector organizations including distributors, suppliers, group purchasing organizations, health information technology providers, and hospital systems.
In 2015, CAPS integrated the HSRC as an Industry Advisory Group, enjoying all the benefits of HSRC membership combined with enhanced CAPS membership benefits and cross-industry resources like practitioner-focused research, benchmarking services, and peer-to-peer networking events. With a single financial commitment to CAPS, HSRC membership is open to all companies in the health sector, contributing further to the group’s breadth, activity, data, and intellectual capital.
The CAPS-HSRC is the leading source of unbiased, actionable research and strategic resources to reduce risk, lower cost, influence policy, and accelerate the performance of the health sector supply chain.
