Jamie C. Kowalski, LLC and PerformanSC announce the publication of the fifth edition of the health system supply chain insights research

Publication builds on comprehensive insights into Consolidated Service Center supply model in healthcare

Jamie C. Kowalski Consulting, LLC and PerformanSC Supply Chain Ltd – published the findings of the 2021 edition of their groundbreaking research, compiled from direct inputs from health system supply chain leaders. 

This research charts the development of healthcare supply chains, particularly from providers that use a Consolidated Service Center (CSC) model for their supply chain and other support services.   

The researchers are independent consultants, who have tracked the development of Health System supply chains since 2012.  Previous reports in the series were completed and published in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018.

The challenging demand and supply conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic during 2020, provided a significant test for health systems globally.  

The research provides direct insights into health system supply chain performance, both internally and that of key partners.   It provides specific learnings on the challenges faced during the pandemic, and the implications on future decisions on supply chain design, sourcing and risk management.  The research continues to chart the development of the scope of services, products and technology within CSC run health systems.

All provider organizations that completed the survey receive a copy of the report, which details the findings. 

Others interested in the research may contact Jamie Kowalski at or Lorcan Sheehan at for more information.
