For each product line, the task force followed the following process:
Each of the 13 product lines have:
- A product line lead who serves as the primary point of contact between the product line work and the MTF executive team. As each product line develops prototypes or identifies alternative products, the product line lead is responsible for ensuring that the prototype or alternative product meets the minimum clinical and technical specs.
- Other clinical and technical leads who evaluate protoypes and provide technical expertise on the product line.
Some product lines have a supply chain task force lead, a representative from BJC Supply Chain (the entity that manages all PPE and medical supplies for inpatient operations at BJH and all other BJC hospitals). They keep the MTF executive team informed about the needs of the system. Based on BJC Supply Chain's needs, the task force will be sharing the current specs, quantities, and timelines that each product line needs to deliver on.
