You are the heart of the IDN Summit and everything that goes into the event is tailored to fit the needs of IDN executives like you.

There’s never been a more crucial time to collaborate on the future of the healthcare and pharmacy supply chain.

The IDN Summit Experience

Professional Development

You’re certain to gain practical solutions that can be immediately implemented within your organization. Educational content is sourced from IDN executives across the nation to provide insight into the most pressing healthcare supply chain and pharmacy challenges, relevant market developments, and practical and progressive ideas being implemented within the industry. Featuring breakout sessions centered around supply chain and pharmacy operations strategies, senior level discussions, and visionary keynotes, there’s something for everyone at the 2021 Summits.

Educational content will be presented through a mixture of live and on-demand formats:

  • Industry-Leading Education
  • Continuing Education (CE) Hours – Credits/hours awarded for ARHMM, ACHE-Q, ANCC & ACPE
  • Breakout Sessions
  • Visionary Keynotes
  • Idea Exchanges

Product Sourcing Opportunities

We’ve ditched the traditional expo floor and created a Reverse Expo experience that is unlike any other event, allowing you to efficiently engage in meaningful conversations with some of the largest and the most innovative suppliers in the industry.

On-Site Experience: The Reverse Expo allows IDN and RPC executives to staff a booth on the exhibit floor, while suppliers and GPOs visit the booths. Through this format, you’re able to see a variety of products and services to benefit your organization, all in one place, in a safe and controlled environment. There’s no need for vendors to enter your facility and you can engage in sourcing discussions in a convenient and efficient manner!

Virtual Experience: Through this format, you’re able to see a variety of products and services to benefit your organization, all in one place, through the virtual platform. There’s no need for vendors to enter your facility, however, you’re still able to arrange meaningful demos and conversations in virtual meeting rooms hosted by supplier companies. Engage in these meetings alone or pull in other registered members of your team for truly collaborative discussions.

Substantive & Efficient Networking

We understand the importance and need for substantive, yet efficient networking experiences between today’s supply chain and pharmacy leaders, GPOs, and suppliers to overcome supply chain disruptions and continuity concerns resulting from COVID-19. The Reverse Expo offers dedicated time for product sourcing and review. You can also rely on the IDN Summit staff to assist you with facilitating connections with peer IDNs, provide supplier lists for specific products you may be sourcing, and more to assist you with strengthening your supply chain.
