Healthcare is changing. Healthcare organizations are growing and care continues to expand outside of the four walls of the hospital. This growth provides more capacity to utilize scale to create healthcare companies that are better functioning, smarter organizations. Intra-company - the enterprise-wide movement of physical materials, such as blood and specimens, pharmaceuticals, supplies, equipment, print, mail and more - is the foundation of the healthcare supply chain. Every health system needs transportation for its clinical operations to function. MedSpeed is the market-leading organization that is changing the way the healthcare industry views healthcare logistics by leveraging it to help health systems and other healthcare organizations integrate. MedSpeed treats transportation as a strategic asset that works as a means to achieving greater operational efficiencies, reducing risk, more effectively utilizing scale, eliminating redundancies and centralizing services. http://www.medspeed.com
