Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Foundation

Founded in 1978 with headquarters in Gardena, California, pharmaceutical wholesale distributor DV Medical Supply serves providers of both human and animal medical care, such as hospitals, veterinary clinics, and pharmacies. Outside of its daily operations, DV Medical Supply supports the efforts of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Foundation (VECCF).

Founded nearly 15 years ago, VECCF was first convened to help provide financial tools and other assistance for initiatives aimed at providing needed care to vulnerable animals whose owners can’t afford care, or who don’t have anyone to care for them at all. The organization also funds research programs that help find new treatments for diseases in pets, among other efforts.

VECCF accomplished this by partnering with nonprofit organizations who share the same mission and passion. In addition to research efforts, VECCF supports educational training to keep providers up to date on veterinary medicine and also helps with on-the-ground animal care whenever disasters hit.

Supply Chain Management Strategies for Health Care Companies

Supply Chain Management

For the better part of four decades, DV Medical Supply has delivered high-quality medical and pharmaceutical supplies for clients operating in various health care sectors. Thanks to its prompt, personal service, DV Medical Supply helps ensure maximal supply chain integrity for health care organizations.

Health care supply chain management represents an essential consideration for companies looking to reduce waste and maximize revenue. Companies often begin by taking an in-depth look at their costs, focusing on hidden costs such as management and movement of supplies and inventory holding. In the same vein, health care organizations must identify sources of financial waste and rectify them as quickly as possible. A common way to reduce financial waste is to standardize inventories available to clinicians, avoiding potentially costly preference items from each physician.

Outside of reducing financial waste, inventory management is a key component of supply chain management. Thanks to technological advances, health care organizations can use comprehensive tracking systems to understand how supplies flow in and out of their inventory. Using this data, companies can make informed purchasing decisions and reduce inefficiencies due to poor inventory management.

Prevention Research Efforts at JDRF

A medical and pharmaceutical supply company headquartered in Gardena, California, DV Medical Supply provides top-quality service to clients throughout the health care sector. DV Medical Supply also maintains an active philanthropic presence, supporting organizations such as JDRF.

Formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, JDRF works to create a world where nobody has to struggle with type-1 diabetes (T1D). In addition to funding research to find effective cures and treatments for the disease, JDRF sponsors research into preventing the onset of T1D. Although T1D is not currently preventable, there may still be risk factors that individuals can avoid.

Thanks to research grants provided by JDRF, medical scientists have discovered a link between T1D onset and triggers such as viral infections and environmental conditions. Based on these associations, researchers have begun investigating potential vaccines for T1D. Another exciting avenue of inquiry involves microbes in the gut, which may play an important role in the onset of autoimmune disorders such as T1D.
