A virtual platform launched by the Supply Chain Advancement Network in Health (SCAN Health) will allow business students around the world to compete and demonstrate to a global audience their skill, knowledge, and ideas to advance health sector supply chain innovation.
The third SCAN Health Virtual Business Case Competition will run through March 1, with the top three teams announced March 13. The case is based on a real-world challenge and designed with one of the largest, leading health systems in the U.S.
Participating students will take the role of a consulting team advising this leading health system on the development of a cybersecurity strategy that is inclusive of the supply chain. Competitors are encouraged to form cross-disciplinary teams including students from business and health sciences faculties.
The first place team will receive $4,000, second place $2,500, and third place $1,000, and all three will be profiled across the SCAN Health global network.
As a virtual business case competition, this is a free opportunity for student teams to explore a real-world healthcare supply chain challenge. There is no cost for travel or registration.
Registration is now open and Round 1 submissions are due by Feb. 2. Details and registration are available on the competition website.
