Transparent Collaboration | Now More Than Ever

Join us for an open conversation from a supplier and provider perspective about what transparent collaboration looks like, especially in a post-COVID-19 environment. Panelists include our very own supply chain solutions team member Mike Hughes, as well as provider representatives Dave Marcelleti, from Mayo Clinic and Jack Koczela, from Froedtert Health.

Value-based Healthcare – From Platitude to Partnerships

For many, value-based healthcare is still viewed as a nice goal to have, but not one that is gaining market momentum. For others, it is becoming the guiding principle for the future of provider and supplier relationships. In this session, Lumere Chief Medical Officer John Cherf, MD, MPH, MBA will explore with Medtronic's Vice President of Value-based Healthcare Christian Howell and Bill Selles, Senior Director of Procurement, Spectrum Health how suppliers and providers are navigating this new landscape and building  partnerships that delivers value for their respective organizations and the populations they serve. 

Optimizing Purchased Services Post-Covid 

With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, business continuity became a matter of survival for many hospitals across the country. Soaring demand and supply shortages thrust supply chain organizations to the center of boardroom-level focus. Underpinning these conversations are the suppliers, including third-party services, which play an incredible role in the evolving response. This webinar will cover the four emerging themes guiding the future of purchased services procurement.  

As one of the largest influenza vaccine providers in the world, Seqirus is a major contributor to the prevention of influenza globally and a transcontinental partner in pandemic preparedness. Seqirus, a CSL company, operates state-of-the-art production facilities on 3 continents, has leading R&D capabilities, and a commercial presence in more than 20 countries.

Harnessing the Power of Procedural Supply and Clinical Data 

Identifying improvement opportunities, increasing efficiency, and highlighting exceptional performance can be challenging and time-consuming when data resides in disparate systems. As supply chain becomes increasingly data-driven, health systems are leveraging technology to determine how cost, utilization and clinical outcomes affects other areas of resource management. In this session, you will learn how to combine clinical and supply analytics to understand the costs, utilization, and quality of care associated with each patience experience.
