The World Congress 8th Annual Leadership Summit on Health Care Supply Chain

The World Congress 8th Annual Leadership Summit on Health Care Supply Chain

“Retaining quality” in combination with “cutting costs” is of major concern for health care supply chain professionals. Being able to turn a provider system into a cost-saving entity is a true team effort and it is important to engage all parties involved early on. At the World Congress 8th Annual Summit on Health Care Supply Chain, senior level experts from leading provider and industry organizations are sharing strategies and best practices for creating financial success without compromising the quality of care. Panel discussions, presentations and focus groups dive into key elements needed for achieving a healthy supply chain including: physician partnerships, creating an environment of trust with the vendor marketplace, the impact of actual data and metrics on clinical outcomes, the benefits of global sourcing and of course implementing new standards.

Through thought-provoking panels and case studies at this Summit, you will hear how leading organizations are transforming their supply chain departments into centralized systems with a strategic, collaborative and innovative focus. In addition, many networking opportunities provide you with plenty of time to exchange strategies and to gather new ideas.


  • Linking actual supply chain data with clinical data to improve results
  • Establishing strategic vendor partnerships
  • Realizing what metrics are being used for measuring data and establishing priorities
  • Global sourcing – perspectives on risk management and alternative supplies
  • Consequences of cost transparencies
