In no other industry is having what you need when you need it more important, none-the-less many of us will be surprised at what level logistics organizations can play a part in healthcare delivery.  It goes beyond, just getting implants, medications, tests and other necessary healthcare components where they need to be.  They must be "handled with care" to the extreme.  From "chain of custody" to "cryogenic" technologies, how these healthcare related packages arrive matters.

Robin Hooker of UPS joins us to discuss how UPS implements their "It's a patient, not a package" philosophy.

Nationally we have been made well aware of veterans support programs like Wounded Warrior and Veterans Employment and Training (VETS). Our guest for this episode, former U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Amy R. Justice, brings to light another brilliant support program being offered through the Healthcare Information and Management Services Society (HIMSS). Veterans Career Services (VCS) is a comprehensive program designed to help veterans transition from military service to gainful civilian employment in the progressive and growing field of healthcare information technology.

If you are a veteran, you can learn how to access these services or become a "V Mentor" to help fellow veterans.

If you are not a veteran, learn how your organization can take part in the worthy endeavor to help veterans bring their talents to this important career field.
