ASC supply chain tip of the day: Manage risk

When supply chain shortages occur, understanding how hurricanes or other severe weather can affect supply chain operations can help ASCs stay ahead of disruptions, according to Cheryl Poplaski, Vizient's senior director of supply chain operations.

She shared the following supply chain tip with Becker's ASC Review:

"Understanding the risk of disruptions in your supply chain takes time, planning and continuous assessment. In every instance, it’s important to ensure that you have the information needed to manage the delay and deploy a mitigation strategy," she said. "Assess your risk during times of potential disruptions, such as hurricanes or other inclement weather, in conjunction with suppliers to understand their business continuity plan."
