Digital transformation of the healthcare supply chain has the potential to improve clinical safety. The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed major deficiencies in the healthcare supply chain (HSC) such as shortages of Personal Protective Equipment and Vaccines. Many healthcare supply chain processes are manual due to complexity, costs, lack of solutions and minimal capability to benefit from digitization, use of unique identifiers and aggregated data. This study is based the implementation of a digital tool to enable electronic procurement between healthcare providers and their suppliers. An artifact, HSC Clinical Safety Evaluation Model is being developed to measure the key clinical safety indicators both pre and post digital transformation of an important component of the healthcare supply chain for small to medium healthcare providers. The results of this study will produce an empirical evaluation model for use by healthcare service providers. The findings are expected to confirm that digital transformation of the healthcare supply chain improves clinical safety. This study will provide healthcare organisations a framework and tools to measure and work towards digitally improving their healthcare supply chains to increase clinical safety.
