Transforming healthcare procurement through process improvement and technology innovation

Developing innovative procurement strategies to achieve better economic benefits, efficiency and outcomes in healthcare

 
COVID-19 has highlighted various forms of disruptions that can occur within the healthcare supply chain and procurement ecosystem. Australian healthcare providers are contending with significant shortages of critical equipment and supplies on a global scale. 

To keep up with evolving customer expectations, patient demographics, demanding vendors, supply shortages and technology, it is now more crucial than ever that healthcare procurement leaders challenge traditional approaches to procurement and move towards solidifying a strong value-oriented approach to procurement processes.

The Procurement in Healthcare Forum connects over 20 like-minded healthcare procurement and supply chain leaders who will be sharing their powerful case studies and practical insights on how they are transforming and elevating the procurement function through:  
 
  • Continuous process improvement applications
  • Technology and data analytics to improve decision making
  • The optimisation and visibility of supplier channels and stakeholder relationships
  • Integrating procurement and supply-chain systems 
 
Don't miss out on the discussion! Gain a closer look into the dynamics, strategies and practical solutions needed to navigate the ever-changing priorities of today's healthcare procurement function.
