Session ID: 

Scaling the Supply Chain: Perspectives from Academic Medical Centers

2:30pm - 3:30pm Monday, February 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


In large academic organizations across the world, the clinically integrated supply chain is revolutionizing the way care is delivered: with interdisciplinary approaches to shared leadership and governance, expansion of organizational structures into the community, and redefinitions of organizational structures to accommodate patients everywhere, exploiting the clinically integrated supply chain is a strategic imperative. Based on the experiences of large academic medical centers, healthcare organizations everywhere realize that it is possible to develop a supply chain competency for less massive organizations without large-scale resources.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the common elements, success points, and essential components of the clinically integrated supply chain in an academic medical setting
  • Discuss the drivers of scale, the strategies needed to achieve the next level, and how to maintain a scaled down version of a clinically integrated supply chain
  • Examine the strategies needed for inter-professional collaboration across the healthcare ecosystem to achieve shared goals
  • Develop a vision for integrating the community across the care continuum and beyond the walls of the healthcare organization
