OpenMarkets advisor and supply chain leader, John Strong, led the first broadcast in an education series aimed at improving the healthcare capital equipment procurement process. The broadcast recording is now available for viewing.
During the broadcast, John Strong, former CEO of Consorta and advisor to Greenhealth Exchange and multiple healthcare supply chain stakeholders, touched on crucial questions that supply chain leaders should be asking themselves, such as the differences between price and value. Overall, he stressed that the word “change” needs to become part of the vernacular of supply chain leaders.
“We need to be open to new concepts and new ideas as the supply chain reinvents itself. We’re also going to see a re-drawing of industry lines,” said Strong during the hour-long presentation. “As an industry, healthcare has gone through tremendous amounts of change over the last 30 years, and we’re seeing a period of time right now where it’s changing even more rapidly than ever.”
During the session, Strong also explored the rapidly-changing world of supply chain, an important issue that impacts healthcare leaders around the country. He touched on a series of important topics, including building revenue, cost and margin pressures across healthcare, threats to revenue, and how sales models used by suppliers are evolving.
