IDN Summit, 22 April, Orlando FL
TECSYS-Sponsored a Lunch & Learn program at the recent IDN Summit, “The Transformable Supply Chain” featuring Brent Johnson, Chief Procurement Officer, Intermountain Healthcare; Curtis Dudley, Vice President of Integrated Performance Solutions, Mercy; and Mike Wentling, Chief Solutions Officer, ROi. The discussion focused on the changes in the healthcare supply chain that have driven the development of consolidated service centers/supply chain centers.
It was an especially compelling panel as Mercy & ROi established the first self-distribution operation in healthcare 10 years ago and Intermountain just opened their Supply Chain Center last fall. We have seen a lot of industry movement in this decade! Additionally, the perspectives of the panelists was a unique mix – “in from outside” healthcare, always in healthcare and the coming over from the supplier side to the provider side of the equation.
