Monday August 30, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Speaker: Brent Petty & Matt Putman 

With the rise of patient consumerism and increasingly complex supply chains, the importance of price and product transparency for IDNs will only continue to grow. Once transparency is achieved, you can reap numerous benefits beyond better patient care, including improving your supply chain operations and mitigating disruptions. We’ll begin this session with a discussion on all aspects of the new price transparency rule followed by a presentation on improving your product transparency processes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the growing importance of transparency in the healthcare supply chain.
  2. Analyze solutions to simplify the pricing transparency implementation process.
  3. Identify strategies to improve product transparency and reduce risk in the supply chain.
