The Supply Chain Advancement Network in Health (SCAN Health) has opened registration in a competition that provides students from around the world an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills to create innovative solutions that address a real-world health system challenge.
This year’s SCAN Health Virtual Business Case Competition focuses on the supply chain challenges of sourcing personal protective equipment to protect patients and health workers during COVID-19.
Participating students will play the role of a consulting team advising the Government of Canada on the development of a co-ordinated healthcare supply chain.
Teams will have the opportunity to win cash prizes, gain international expert input on their solutions, and present at a conference hosted by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society — slated for Las Vegas, Aug 9 to 13, 2021.
Round 1 submissions are due by Nov. 27. Find details, including eligibility, rules, prizes, judging criteria, and registration, on the competition website.
