EXECUTION

Network & Execution

Challenges

  • Local and state governments are independently sourcing medical equipment that is in very short supply
  • Independent sourcing has led to market chaos, price escalation and misallocation of medical equipment and supplies.
  • Market chaos is putting both patients, medical professionals and first responders in jeopardy

MISSION

  • Create and provide aggregate demand forecast for running 12 weeks for the hospital inventory model
  • Secure/aggregate demand allocation by city/state to create cooperative procurement opportunities
  • Help guide our local hospital network through supply chain issues, including logistics, distribution and last-mile deliveries
  • Create a network of alliances at the Local/State level to facilitate synchronized execution.

PRIORITIES

  • Local and state governments are independently sourcing medical equipment that is in very short supply
  • Develop an aggregate supply model based on the demand models used by local, state and federal officials to predict the number who will be infected and hospitalized
  • Use the aggregate supply model to ensure medical resources reach their destinations in time to save lives
  • Identify and vet valid suppliers
  • Return supplies to appropriate pricing levels by minimizing local, state and federal competition
  • Be a part of the National solution
