Abstract: 

This research is concerned with the quantification of risk in healthcare supply chain. Specifically, the purpose is to develop risk management strategies that can treat the adverse consequences of disruption risk in a hospital supply chain and in turn improve efficiency and responsiveness, quality of patient care and safety. Risk management in healthcare supply chain demands identification and management of portfolio of risk exposures across the hospital. This research leverages AHP framework to assess, evaluate, and quantify portfolio of risks attached to a hospital supply chain operations.
