Of course healthcare is a supply chain
SEPTEMBER 14, 2015
The information systems currently in use are brilliant at scheduling resources used in hospitals — patients, beds, nurses, physicians, specialists, inventory. Of course hospitals are complex, dynamic service chains. I fly Qantas around Australia quite frequently (don’t ask how many frequent flyer miles I’ve got banked, but my wife loves her new washing machine). If a flight is delayed or cancelled, I get an SMS alerting me of the issue and alternatives.
