Session ID: 

Clinical Supply Chain Integration in a Data-Driven Healthcare Environment

10:00am - 11:00am Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


“Clinical Integration” is a key component of many supply chain strategies, but its definition and implementation vary greatly, creating confusion when partnering with key stakeholders, such as physicians, payers, suppliers, and purchasing organizations. AHRMM’s Cost-Quality-Outcomes (CQO) Movement was envisioned as a continually evolving initiative that helps providers and suppliers think more holistically to achieve the Triple Aim: Improving the patient experience and the health of populations, while reducing the per capita cost of healthcare. As healthcare moves toward more value-based payment models and the CQO Movement evolves, the need for a clearer definition of “Clinical Integration” is emerging. This session will address new key stakeholders, managing “new” data, a better way to engage physicians in supply chain and value-based payment models to achieve a data-driven definition of “Clinical Integration.”
