This summary provides an overview of the Speaker Series presentation led by Dr. Snowdon on the ‘Key Characteristics of a Fragile Healthcare Supply Chain.’ This presentation was held on February 16, 2021. The aim of her talk was to provide attendees with an overview of the emerging results from the CIHR-funded study. The study’s objective was to develop an implementation framework to advance provincial and national health system supply chain management, through comparative analysis of provincial healthcare supply chains, examining the digital maturity of supply chain infrastructure, exploring related policy frameworks, as well as the effectiveness of federal, provincial, and territorial governmental supply chain coordination through mixed methods research.
