Thought Leadership Panel: All Healthcare is Local

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 | 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM

Host: Brent Petty, Chief Relationships Officer, Bluegrass Business Media

Panelists: Karen Conway, Past Chair, AHRMM; Sara Henderson, Vice President of Supply Chain, Avera Health; and Dameka Miller, Vice President, Strategic Sourcing & Value Analysis, Trinity Health

Former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Tip O’Neal, famously said that ‘all politics is local’ and while events of the past two years may have focused attention around the globe, we are well to remember that all healthcare is delivered locally. We all serve are immediate communities and champion the fight for better healthcare in our communities down to the zip code. Population health has presented us a unique platform to observe and deliver personalized and preventative care to each community group helping to erase healthcare disparities. This Thought Leadership Panel will share actual examples of improving the overall quality of life through the efforts of the healthcare supply chain.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe inequalities that exist in communities we serve in both rural and urban settings.
  2. Analyze Population Health strategies to identify underserved population groups and unmet healthcare needs.
  3. Summarize opportunities that each of us involved in the healthcare supply chain can participate in serving the healthcare needs of all community members

Executive Leadership Keynote Panel: It's High Time for Supply Chain

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 | 9:30 AM - 10:45 AM

Host: Brent Johnson, Retired - Vice President, Supply Chain, Intermountain Healthcare

Panelists: Richard Bagley, Senior Vice President, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Penn State Health; Kreg Koford, Senior Vice President, Supply Chain & Hospital Operations, Memorial Slone Kettering Cancer Center; Joe Walsh, Executive Coach & Educator, Supply Chain Sherpas

Overnight, the COVID crisis made ‘supply chain’ a conversation topic in every household while also thrusting our healthcare supply chain into the national spotlight.  Supply chain functions at providers and suppliers now have the undivided attention of their respective c-suites.  Supply chain’s strategic relevance is self-evident as we benefit from peak levels of awareness and support.  How will we show up, and what will we do with at this unprecedented inflection point?    

Brent will share findings from a recent industry wide survey about the changes to our healthcare supply chain over the last 5 years.  The findings revealed varied and surprising insights, which may help inform a transformation roadmap for providers and suppliers.  Brent and the Intermountain Healthcare alumni of panelists will then discuss some of these changes (and challenges) as they humbly share their setbacks, breakthroughs, and experiences.   Richard, Kreg, and Joe will share strategy, framework, and real world examples to help inspire meaningful progression towards a more connected, resilient, and capable healthcare supply chain.   

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain survey results, specifying areas where healthcare supply chain has changed or stalled.
  2. Discuss the significance of this moment in time, and why it’s essential for our healthcare supply chain to embrace change.
  3. Present ideas on how recent initiatives will assist us in becoming the healthcare supply chain of tomorrow.
