    In 2019, the country experienced a wave of natural disasters and other emergencies that put stress on hospitals and healthcare providers as they served affected communities. GPOs were on the front lines of those emergencies, providing support to healthcare providers and working with manufacturers to identify and locate supplies of much-needed resources. As we now enter 2020, focus will continue to be on the importance of healthcare supply chain leaders to provide expertise in emergency preparedness and offer strategic thinking ahead of challenges to enable the healthcare industry to continue to provide top-quality care to patients in every situation.

    Khatereh Calleja, President and CEO, of the Healthcare Supply Chain Association (HSCA), which represents the nation’s leading healthcare group purchasing organizations (GPOS), the sourcing and purchasing partners to virtually all of America’s 7,000+ hospitals, as well as the vast majority of the 68,000+ long term care facilities, surgery centers, clinics, and other healthcare providers will discuss GPO leadership in today’s healthcare and specifically address critical work in emergency preparedness and challenges and opportunities of the future.

    As part of the discussion, we will cover:

    • Role of Group Purchasing Organizations & Impact on Health Care System
    • Key Activities in Disaster Relief Efforts
    • Recent Case Studies Across US in Emergency Response
    • Opportunities and Challenges Ahead
