Dee Donatelli added to Hall of Fame for Healthcare Supply Chain Leadership Board

Our Congratulations to member and Past President, Dee Donatelli , who has been appointed to the Bellwether League Inc. Hall of Fame for Healthcare Supply Chain Leadership.  The following is an excerpt from the article that appeared in the May 18th issue of HPN Daily.

Bellwether League Inc., the Hall of Fame for Healthcare Supply Chain Leadership welcomed a new executive to its Board of Directors that evaluate, validate and select professionals to be recognized and honored for their industry contributions, performance and vision, and two corporate sustaining sponsors at the highest level of support.

Dee Donatelli joins Bellwether League's Board to select Bellwether Class Honorees, Future Famers and Ammer-Level Supply Chain Organizations within the industry with a clear understanding of the Hall of Fame's impact on the profession and industry.

"Bellwether League's mission is to bring to light the efforts of influencers, innovators, pioneers and the risk takers that have helped and continue to mold the healthcare supply chain profession," Donatelli said. "There is no greater honor than to be recognized by your peers and designated a Bellwether.  The respect that Bellwether holds in the industry is the paramount recognition for professionals in supply chain.  The legacy Bellwethers leave in the healthcare field is worthy to record and to be recognized throughout generations to come."     

Donatelli currently serves as the principal of her own consulting practice that specializes in clinically integrating the supply chain among provider and supplier organizations. During her nearly 40-year career in healthcare operations as a nurse and supply chain executive, she focused on clinically integrated value analysis processes that involved physician collaboration using clinical evidence as the driver for effective cost management programs.

Prior to Dee Donatelli Consulting, LLC, Donatelli served as President and CEO of Mid-America Service Solutions, a Vizient Member Business Ventures network representing more than 250 acute care and 1,200 non-acute care facilities in a 10-state region. Her previous experience also includes supply chain consulting leadership roles in such organizations as Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, Owens & Minor, VHA, Hayes Inc., Navigant Consulting and Vizient, as well as nursing and supply chain executive positions in hospitals.

Donatelli is a former president of the Association of Healthcare Value Analysis Professionals (AHVAP) where she helped to facilitate the creation of Value Analysis Certification. She also has been involved with the Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management (AHRMM), serving at the state-level for Kansas and on the national board. She has held certifications with both national organizations as well as Fellow Status. She has also been an active Editorial Advisory Board and contributor to Healthcare Purchasing News.

Donatelli was inducted into the Bellwether Class of 2015.

"Having been inducted as a Bellwether in [October] 2015 was certainly a highlight in my career," she reflected. "The privilege to serve on the Bellwether Board is a great responsibility and one that I take very seriously.  The recording and recognition of key contributors in our field is something that is important and serves as a historical reminder of the dedication and accomplishment that individuals have made in healthcare's supply chain. 

"As we continue to honor individuals for their achievements we have a significant responsibility to continue to enhance the value of healthcare's supply chain," Donatelli continued. "I believe that those Bellwethers past and future have an ongoing responsibility to network and continue to drive change and innovation in our field. As a new BOD member I hope to influence professionals in our industry to continue to work to achieve better and more cost-effective outcomes for the patients we serve and the industry we love."  

Bellwether League Board Chairman Nick Gaich expressed his admiration and respect for Donatelli's Board position.

"I am pleased and honored to welcome Dee Donatelli as a member of the Bellwether League Board of Directors," said Board Chairman Nick Gaich. "As a Bellwether honoree herself, inducted in the class of 2015, Dee brings a legacy of lifetime contributions, passion and commitment to advance the Bellwether mission as the preeminent organization for recognizing Supply Chain excellence among healthcare leaders and organizations.

"Bellwether League is fully committed to serve as the 'cornerstone destination' organization for recognizing supply chain excellence," Gaich continued. "The addition of Dee Donatelli as Board contributor will both strengthen and accelerate our efforts as we set sights on our next decade of service."
