The Office of the Supply Chain provides direction for centralized purchasing, shipping and receiving, distribution services, hospital materials, and Central Sterile Supply. These departments form the comprehensive supply chain support for University Hospital, the UAMS Campus and Regional Programs.

UAMS Supply Chain has begun utilizing the new ServiceNow – Supply Chain Portal to route new and existing requests into a value analysis and contract review process.  The Supply Chain Portal is a collection of online forms that take the place of email and allows the end user to track the status of their request within the ServiceNow Portal.

Continuing programs involved in improving customer service include:

  • Procurement automation
  • Data analytics
  • Supply chain optimization
  • LEAN Sigma programs
  • Vendor performance analytics
  • Hospital supply contract management
  • Off-site distribution facility
