The SCAN Health Knowledge Mobilization platform enables the health sector, industry, government, academia and citizens to come together on key priorities and learning opportunities to profile best practice achievements in supply chain transformation, allowing for knowledge sharing and relationship building between health sector organizations and SCAN Health partners. The platform provides dynamic tools to support active dialogue and discussions that engage SCAN Health partners across jurisdictions to support knowledge sharing and collaboration to advance supply chain transformation in health systems.
About SCAN Health:
In 2017, the Government of Canada, Networks of Centres of Excellence of Canada (NCE) provided 1.6 million dollars over four years (2017-2021) to create SCAN Health. Hosted by the University of Windsor’s Odette School of Business, SCAN Health is an International Knowledge Translation Platform (NCE-IKTP) funded to accelerate knowledge translation and address key problems, challenges and opportunities of high strategic importance for health systems in Canada and around the globe.
Spanning five countries, including Australia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada – and with over one hundred partners from industry, healthcare, government and academia – the Network will enable the exchange of information and expertise to accelerate the implementation of healthcare supply chain best practices around the world.
By mobilizing supply chain best practices to track health products and processes to patient outcomes we can significantly reduce medical error, increase health system sustainability and drive economic growth for companies globally.
