The new health system supply chain mandate: What every SAM needs to know
Hosted by: N/A | Thursday | October 8th | 5p.m. UTC
Covid-19 has painfully illuminated the healthcare supply chain’s multiple fissures and failure points. Despite numerous heroic efforts from IDNs, suppliers and distributors, too many organizations are still struggling to maintain adequate levels of PPE, essential pharmaceuticals and diagnostic testing supplies.
The silver lining: Leaders across the healthcare ecosystem recognize that the entire supply chain must evolve to become more agile and resilient. But given health systems’ precarious finances, the supply chain must evolve in ways that do not significantly increase costs.
Despite government officials’ talk of increased stockpiles and domestic manufacturing, the sustainable solution requires greater transparency across all parts of the supply chain. To deliver on this promise of increased visibility, suppliers must transform their approach to value messaging, data sharing, collaboration and strategic customer engagement.
Join Brandi Greenberg, Vice President of Advisory Board’s life sciences and healthcare ecosystem research team, as she reviews the most salient insights emerging from Advisory Board’s exploration into what it will take to enable a more modern and resilient healthcare supply chain.
In this webinar, attendees will learn:
• How the new supply chain resiliency mandates are impacting health system purchasing priorities, inventory requirements and vendor expectations
• How health system executives across finance, operations, strategy and purchasing are working together to mitigate supply chain risk
• How progressive health systems are creating new roles, leveraging data and establishing new partnerships to enhance supply-chain visibility and resilience
• How SAMs can build trust to enable the kinds of collaborative relationships and service models necessary for long-term success
