CHICAGO – The Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management, better known as AHRMM, has created new research consortium focused on health sector supply chain research, the Academic Council for Healthcare Supply Chain Research.
The council evolved from a symposium in the fall of 2009, where 14 academics gathered in Chicago to identify the most pressing healthcare supply chain issues.
Eugene Schneller, Professor at the W. P. Carey School of Business, Arizona State University, and Leroy Schwarz, Professor, Krannert School of Management, Purdue University are the co-chairs. The group plans to meet annually, but will share syllabi, white papers, articles, and research papers on an ongoing basis. AHRMM will serve as host, sponsor, and convener; publications will be shared through AHRMM’s Knowledge Center.
For more information: Academicians and Institutions promoting research interested in working with the council should contact Leroy Schwarz, LSchwarz@purdue.edu. The Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management, a a personal membership group of the American Hospital Association, is the leading national association for executives in the healthcare resource and materials management profession. Founded in 1962, AHRMM prepares its members to contribute to the field and advance the profession through networking, education, recognition, and advocacy. See www.ahrmm.org.
