Cook Medical’s Dave Reed recognised as Supply Chain Leadership award winner

‘I am honored and humbled to receive the GHX Supply Chain Leadership Supplier award’, said Dave Reed, vice president of healthcare solutions at Cook Medical. ‘Receiving this award is a testament to all the individuals at Cook who have helped us become a leader in data standards and supply chain optimisation. I’m proud to be part of a company that prioritises this initiative to reduce healthcare costs.’

In 2016, Cook Medical also received the Supplier of the Year award from GHX, for efforts surrounding data standards and UDI adoption, a process similar to bar coding, that helps improve cost and efficiency. For the last two years, Cook Medical has been recognised by the GHX as a member of The Millennium Club, for achieving the highest levels of healthcare supply chain automation based on the volume of transactions with customers.
