One of ASP Global’s top corporate priorities is helping large hospitals and IDNs improve quality and reduce costs associated with common, commoditized hospital products. Our global sourcing programs and associated supply chain strategies excel in this regard. Just ask Northside Hospital, Westchester Medical Center and NewYork Presbyterian.

The IDN Summit and Expo is always a high priority event for our team given the opportunity to share insights and learn about the top supply chain needs for leading IDNs and health systems. We are confident the 2016 Summit taking place next week in Phoenix will be a high value event for all attendees. Here’s what we are looking forward to most.

Supplier Strategies Track

As providers face new demands and assume more risk for the health of a population, they will require the supplier community to more effectively demonstrate their value, including clinical, financial, operational efficiency and patient experience components. In this track, learn best practices in dealing with new alliances, discover strategies for successfully engaging providers, understand how to best position your products and services, and gain insights into the forces that are reshaping the industry from supply chain leaders, GPO executives, and industry analysts.”

We will be attending many of the sessions in this track. Check out the detailed agenda here.

Collaboration Track

“Collaboration between IDNs and suppliers is on the rise in recent years for good reason.  Positive outcomes resulting from increased collaboration include greater cost efficiencies, improved negotiations, increased patient satisfaction, and higher quality and consistency of products and services. In order to have effective collaboration, relationships must be built on mutual trust, openness and honesty, and shared risk and reward. The Collaboration Track will highlight examples of how IDNs and suppliers are making collaborations work for them, the benefits and demonstrated value of collaborations and how such collaborations will look going forward.”

Our global sourcing programs provide high levels of programmatic transparency for the CFOs, supply chain and purchasing managers of large hospitals, IDNs and health systems. This is made possible in part due to our commitment to true partnership with each and every hospital, IDN and health system we serve. We look forward to learning about ways we can further enhance our industry leading global sourcing programs based on the priorities and requirements of the IDNs represented next week in Phoenix. The detailed Collaboration Track agenda is here.
