Final Day of the Healthcare Supply Chain Expo

Today the Healthcare Supply Chain Expo comes to a close, but not before two great sessions are offered at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC.

The opening session is a state of the industry panel featuring top executives from group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and healthcare suppliers. Former Amerinet President and CEO Bud Bowen will moderate the panel, which includes Presidents, CEOs and Chairman from industry leaders BD USA, Dynatronics, Amerinet, Premier, Johnson & Johnson and Bracco Diagnostics.

Discussion on this panel will focus on the relationship between suppliers and GPOs and how to strengthen business practices. The experts will also address how healthcare reform legislation has influenced the industry, and look toward what lies ahead for the healthcare supply chain.

Following this session is the final event of the Expo, a segment concentrating on how to further promote transparency and ethics in the supply chain. This analysis will bring up pertinent issues affecting ethical business practices in the supply chain, and explain how to best manage them.

Moderating this session is former U.S. Senator Bob Bennett. Contributing to the panel is former Pennsylvania Congressman Phil English, who is a coordinator for the Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative (HGPII), as well as Terry Chang, MD, JD, the Associate General Counsel and Director of Legal and Medical Affairs for AdvaMed.

Mike Copps, the Executive Director of the Healthcare Industry Supply Chain Institute (HISCI), the organization co-hosting the Expo with the Healthcare Supply Chain (HSCA), will deliver closing remarks.
