ST. LOUIS, Nov. 20, 2018

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercy's supply chain organization, Resource Optimization & Innovation (ROi), has been ranked No. 4 in the 10th annual Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 by Gartner Inc., a global research company. For a decade now, Mercy is the only company to continuously earn a top 10 spot. The ranking recognizes organizations across health care that demonstrate leadership in improving human life at sustainable costs.

Mercy joins Cleveland Clinic, CVS Health and Johnson & Johnson as leading the nation in health care supply chain. For the complete listing, click here.

In the early 2000s, supply chain leaders from Mercy envisioned ways to make the supply chain more efficient and responsive to the needs of providers and patients. Those leaders, including Mercy President and CEO Lynn Britton, sketched out a strategic approach that internalized and integrated critical facets of the supply chain. In the years to come, the work of ROi has not only delivered more than $1 billion in savings to Mercy, it has helped other providers transform their supply chain into a strategic asset for cost savings.

Gartner highlights Mercy's vision, along with "establishing leading practices in the virtualization of care" with the world's first Virtual Care Center. The center is dedicated to care outside its own walls, monitoring patients 24/7/365 with high-speed data and video connections and medically intervening when and where patients need it with a comprehensive team approach.

Gartner notes that Mercy's Virtual Care Center "has shown good early results using remote care and monitoring strategies to catch problems early, keeping patients at home and lowering costs."
