Recently, Hammock helped its long-time client HealthTrust launch reSOURCEs, a new section of HealthTrust’s public website. The site features insightful and helpful related to the healthcare supply chain, industry topics and clinical best practices—all topics of relevance to HealthTrust membership. Materials managers, clinicians and healthcare executives can explore relevant articles and insights from industry authorities, healthcare professionals and HealthTrust subject matter experts.
The site provides fast access to stories originally in the print version of The Source, HealthTrust’s member magazine that Hammock helps publish every quarter. The site also provides a channel for HealthTrust experts and Hammock healthcare writers share fresh outlooks on current challenges and opportunities facing healthcare professionals in the supply chain.
Recent stories have included a discussion of skyrocketing drug costs, strategies for involving physicians in supply chain decision making, emerging cybersecurity risks with medical devices, and targeting hospital-acquired infections. HealthTrust is also utilizing reSOURCEs as a tool to information utility to share a articles and video on the new Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Categories such as healthcare and professional development break the information down into specific topics. Recurring features like Our Solutions and Our Experts spotlight ways HealthTrust can help members advance in their careers.
