IDN Supply Chain Metrics Benchmarking

Explore two key opportunities for healthcare providers

Most integrated delivery networks (IDNs) do not measure end-to-end (E2E) supply chain performance. Obtaining and analyzing supply chain data across all spend on products and services from third parties is challenging, as is collecting data on the people, technology and infrastructure costs to serve.

Gartner Hierarchy of IDN Supply Chain Metrics benchmarking measures the E2E supply chain performance at healthcare providers. Analysis of the IDN supply chain benchmarking data reveals two key opportunities:

  1. Optimize supply chain costs as a percentage of IDN operating costs.
  2. Use sourcing metrics such as span of control and contracting ratio to increase focus and investment on supply chain.

    The Gartner Hierarchy of IDN Supply Chain Metrics

    The Gartner Hierarchy of IDN Supply Chain Metrics is an eight-metric benchmark database that enables IDN supply chain leaders to compare key supply chain performance metrics with their peers.

    Unlike other supply chain benchmarking methodologies that compare metrics in isolation, the Gartner benchmarking methodology looks at the interdependencies between metrics to identify improvement opportunities and make better business trade-offs between quality, cost and service.

    How to participate:

    The Gartner IDN supply chain benchmarking data collection will occur annually. The current data submission period will close November 30, 2021.
