At the IDN Summit, we believe it is of primary importance during this time to prioritize two things:

  1. The health and well-being of attendees (see our Spring IDN Summit event update);
  2. The facilitation of connections between today's supply chain leaders, GPOs, and suppliers to overcome potential supply chain disruptions and continuity concerns resulting from COVID-19. 

If there are additional resources that would assist you during this time, please contact Taylor Stapleton.
