Government report card gives network high grades

The Supply Chain Advancement Network in Health (SCAN Health) is exceeding expectations in all criteria, says an annual review by the Government of Canada’s Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) Monitoring Committee.

The committee evaluated SCAN Health on specific criteria, including its ability to achieve stated goals, its model of collaboration, and its capacity to address key problems and opportunities of strategic importance to Canada.

After a thorough review of the network’s results, impact and outcomes, the committee determined that SCAN Health is exceeding expectations in all criteria, a milestone rarely achieved in the program’s 30-year history.

“As the first NCE-funded network hosted at a business school, SCAN Health continues to reach new heights and establish benchmarks for NCE networks,” says scientific director Anne Snowdon. “We will continue to grow our capacity to improve population health and safety through supply chain transformation.”
