COVID-19 Resources

At the IDN Summit, we believe it is of primary importance during this time to prioritize two things:

  1. The health and well-being of attendees (see our Spring IDN Summit event update);
  2. The facilitation of connections between today's supply chain leaders, GPOs, and suppliers to overcome potential supply chain disruptions and continuity concerns resulting from COVID-19. 

We are offering the following resources on the website:
