IDN Executive Exchanges

The IDN Summit is an executive-level event designed to support IDN leaders to accomplish their networking, product sourcing, and educational goals. In order to better support these goals and ensure ongoing collaboration, the IDN Summit offers IDN Executive Exchanges—bi-weekly virtual discussions designed for supply chain, pharmacy, and value analysis leaders.

Hosted by the IDN Summit’s Chief Relationships Officer, Brent Petty, these virtual discussions create a collaborative forum for both providers and suppliers to ask questions, gain practical solutions, engage in peer-to-peer learning, and network with other leaders from across the nation.

This Week's Executive Exchange

Pricing Transparency – Supply Chains Role: Effective on January 1, 2021, the Price Transparency Rule (the “Rule”) requires all hospitals to make public a list of their standard charges for items and services via the Internet in a searchable, consumer-friendly format. This requirement is being enforced with the intent to enable healthcare consumers to make more informed decisions based on cost, and ultimately drive down the cost of healthcare services. Join Brent Petty as he breaks down the “Rule” and supply chains role.
