dc.description.abstractRecent years have seen improvements in the Internet and the ability of individuals to make purchases online. Because of these improvements many companies have looked to the Internet to improve their supply chains. The hospital industry has been one such industry. In my research I sought to see how materials management officials viewed the incorporation of e-procurement into the procurement process. This was done through the analysis of current literature, but primarily through interviews conducted at four hospitals with people in the materials management departments. In contrast to my initial thoughts and hypotheses, I found e-procurement in its current state, unlikely to be implemented in today's private hospitals. The changes I feel necessary for e-procurement to be successful in the hospital industry are unlikely to be made because of issues on both the demand and supply sides of the supply chain.en_US
