Collaboration between IDNs and suppliers is on the rise in recent years for good reason. Positive outcomes resulting from increased collaboration include greater cost efficiencies, improved negotiations, increased patient satisfaction, and higher quality and consistency of products and services. In order to have effective collaboration, relationships must be built on mutual trust, openness and honesty, and shared risk and reward. The Collaboration Track will highlight several collaborative situations, including negotiating contracts, managing disruptive events, and encouraging innovation.

Join this session as ways of clarifying future risks and protecting your supply chain will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

1. Evaluate best practices for end-to-end assessment and monitoring.
2. Analyze methods and solutions to predict shortages and disruptions.
