In this episode we visit with Eric O'Daffer who is a Research Vice President in the Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain group.
Mr. O'Daffer's focus is on the end-to-end healthcare value chain, starting at the point of patient care looking back. He focuses most of his time with providers and how they best manage all the components of supply chain. This involves both their internal processes as well as best practices for partnering with their trading partners to optimize the clinical effectiveness of products and provide the best total cost to serve possible.
Mr. O'Daffer's main focus is helping pull all this together in healthcare contextualizing best practices from other industries where applicable.
