 Supplier Session at AHRMM17
A professional development session at AHRMM17 geared toward supplier community:
The Secrets of Successful Collaboration - Strategically Partnering with Providers to Create a Win-Win Environment
Strategically partnering with healthcare providers requires identifying and engaging key players, building trust, transparency, and using direct communication... but how is that best achieved? CQO and the Triple Aim define the value-based model in healthcare, and require suppliers to think differently than in the past. Collaboration is the only way to understand the clinical and economic impact of your products and services to achieve that value. Suppliers are in a unique position to help providers implement the value-based model in their healthcare organizations by collaborating in areas they may not have the expertise or bandwidth to address. This session provides tools and take-aways to understand and strengthen your relationships with providers.
Speaker: Brent Petty, CMRP, Executive Industry Consultant, Global Healthcare Team, Lexmark International, Inc.
AHRMM exhibitors and sponsors: You do not have to have a full conference badge to attend – this session is open to AHRMM’s vendors.
This hour-long session will be offered twice on Monday, July 24, at 10:00 am and 11:30 am.
