Title : Navigating through the global blood tube shortage


The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for the entire healthcare industry and supply chains across all industries globally. Healthcare organizations are feeling pressures from supply disruptions driven by transportation delays, constrained supplies, and increased costs. These pressures, combined with the constantly changing demand for the types and volumes of diagnostic tests needed, has created the most extraordinary and unpredictable demand for blood collection tubes in history. Necessary to this, is reviewing the timeline on how current bottlenecks were initially created with the global pandemic. With current restraints, can hospitals determine what laboratory tests are medically necessary in an effort to limit the number of blood tubes drawn?  More importantly, how can device manufacturers and healthcare professionals implement future strategies to streamline workflow and ease the burden of these scarce resources?
