ABSTRACT
The article discusses the enterprise-wide supply chain effort being managed by the Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) in Englewood, Colorado, in 2011, which is based on insourcing rather than outsourcing. It says that CHI has developed a national infrastructure that deal with all but a small part of the supply chain expenses. According to the author, CHI does not outsource supply chain function locally. The amount spent by CHI annually on supply chain initiatives is also discussed.
