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. 

As such, we are committed to utilizing all available resources, including connecting you with peer health systems, providing PPE supplier lists, and more to assist you during this time. If there are additional resources that would assist you during this time, please contact Taylor Stapleton.
