New AHRMM Webcast
AHRMM Webcasts are a free and quick resource for individuals interested in hearing more on relevant healthcare supply chain topics. Three webcasts are now available and AHRMM will continue to launch additional webcasts throughout 2016.
In 2015, AHRMM and SMI partnered to envision the supply chain executive of the future in order to assist professionals in developing their skills to better lead the healthcare supply chain. This short video webcast discusses the four fundamental pillars of knowledge and traits based on individual interviews, literature research, and other key findings. The ultimate goal of this project is to work together to prepare the supply chain professional of today to become the supply chain leader of the future.
Presenters: Dennis Orthman, Senior Director, SMI and Mike Schiller, CMRP, Senior Director, AHRMM
