Can You Hear Me Now? Supply Chain Communication Strategies

By Dan Hurry, President

August 8, 10:40-11:55 a.m. PT

The Supply chain is no longer a back-office function. The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed supply chain from the hospital basement into the national spotlight. How do we use these 15 minutes of fame to establish proven communication channels? How do we ensure clinical and administrative engagement in a post pandemic future?

Advantus Health Partners’ Dan Hurry will present at the 2022 AHRMM in-person conference. The breakout session will take attendees though the process of assessing the current state of supply chain communication across their system or hospital, how to identify key steps, channels, and desired outcomes to develop a strong communications approach, and what is needed to create external and internal communication strategies that propel supply chain value forward.

New Product Requests: Beauty is in the Eye of the Requestor

By Lisa Maynard, Clinical Transformation Director for Cardiovascular Products, and Yolanda Davis, Clinical Transformation Program Manager for Cardiovascular

August 8, 10:00-11:00 AM PT

Technological advancements, improved product design, and a fellow physician’s recommendation are some common reasons for submitting new product requests within a health care system. Improper management of these requests can result in loss of revenue, mistrust of the supply chain, and non-compliance with the process.

The breakout session will walk through the four classes of new product requests, the critical aspects of new products algorithms, and the three primary benefits of the new product request cascade: Reduction in new product request project lengths, process clarity for the supply chain team and requestors, and improved collaboration from physician’s and clinical leads.
