Participants gather with their peers in this small-group research setting and share observations and insights on some of the issues having the greatest impact in the healthcare supply chain. Many sessions are repeated this year to provide more opportunities to share more opinions with the Focus Group hosts.  Each of the Focus Groups is limited in size, with breakfast served in both sessions. Open to Providers only.
