In the United States, perhaps no groups of organizations impact healthcare delivery more than the GPOs. Their offerings to IDNs are vast and they impact all areas of healthcare. In this session we will visit with four GPO executives representing each of the largest GPOs in the US as they discuss initiatives they have launched (or about to launch) to drive more collaboration with their members and other constituencies.
1) Identify collaboration trends discovering opportunities and pitfalls.
2) Choose which collaboration strategy best impacts your organization.
3) Prepare to outline to your organization how they can best collaborate with other healthcare organizations.
