Healthcare Transparency Initiative

Saving Lives Through Increased Supply Transparency and Reduced Disruptions

About HTI


First of its kind cross-industry collaboration focused exclusively on improving supply chain transparency, lowering risks, and reducing disruptions in the healthcare supply chain

Operational disruption costs are measured in billions between all supply chain stakeholders. Providers no longer accept this as the new normal and require engagement with the value chain to resolve, however timely, accurate and verified data is allusive, and hence the formation of the HTI on its existing data platform to elegantly manage through a crisis and proactively securing the supply chain.

The HTI platform provides visibility and transparency through rapid data transition between all stakeholders and hence a connected supply chain!

Our accountability to the patients and communities that we serve demands that we make mindful decisions about the business continuity risk as we engage suppliers. HTI is a vehicle to assess and monitor that risk.

Providers and device manufacturers both benefit from shared transparency within their supply chain network, so they can collaborate responsively to meet patient and doctor needs. The HTI platform empowers supply chain partners to realize this potential, while simultaneously benefiting the entire Healthcare industry.
