Walmart, Blue Cross Blue Shield, University of Arkansas partner to create the Center for Innovation in Health Care Logistics

Here is more evidence that Big Business and Managed Care see a need to improve the current health care delivery system. Hopefully the roster will include members of Medical Community as well. SV

The Center for Innovation in Health Care Logistics will be dedicated to conducting research aimed at identifying and addressing gaps and roadblocks in the application and delivery of health information technology, and highlighting and replicating proven applications that are working to benefit patients and providers.

The goal of the Center’s work is to put the right materials in the hands of doctors and nurses where and when they need them; it also aims to eliminate the threat of medical errors arising from wasteful and unreliable practices in health care supply networks.
