The study is for the development of a robust framework for Supply Chain Management in health care sector using the basic and technical aspects of health care supply chain. There has been considerable amount of research carried out on supply chain practices in health care sector using current and updated technologies. However, a standard robust framework for practising supply chain management in health care sector is conspicuous by its absence. This research has concentrated on existing health care supply chain practices. Initially, a comprehensive literature review has been carried out to understand and analyse the current scenario of operations being performed in the health care sector. Using the important factors obtained from existing literature, a questionnaire has been developed and data has been collected from 50 people working in 4 different health care organizations. This data has been analysed for prioritization of different factors based on the weightage assigned for the factors by the respondents. The Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) has then been used to analyse the criticality of each of the factors. Using these factors and their weightages, a framework that can be used for supply chain management in the health care sector has been proposed.



Comprehensive literature, prioritization.
