Standards Website

AHRMM Initiative: Benchmarking


Why Do We Need SCMetrix™?
 Industry-accepted benchmarks
 Center on financial metrics – no “line of sight” on specific actions for improvement  Provide little insight on what actually contributes to performance  Focus on acquisition prices rather than total delivered supply costs  Few allow comparison of performance outside of GPOs

 Need statistical evidence
 Investments do reduce costs  Investments do improve other value drivers

AHRMM Initiatives: Data Driven
 Provide valuable, critical information to adopt evidence-based supply chain management  Launch a Foundation for educational research  Continue to work with academic institutions
