She shared the following supply chain tip with Becker's ASC Review:
"Understanding the risk of disruptions in your supply chain takes time, planning and continuous assessment. In every instance, it’s important to ensure that you have the information needed to manage the delay and deploy a mitigation strategy," she said.
