The healthcare industry is increasingly recognizing the critical value of collaboration across provider and supplier organizations as a way to achieve cost savings, strengthen business processes and, most importantly, improve the quality of patient care. At the 16th annual GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit, May 23-25, 2016, in Austin, Texas, keynote headliners will examine the roles of leaders and teams in driving innovation, efficiency and collaboration within the healthcare supply chain.  

The 2016 GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit keynote presentations will feature:

  • James Carville and Mary Matalin: One of America's best-loved political couples, Carville and Matalin will present their stimulating, candid and provocative analysis of the 2016 race for the White House, and offer a behind-the-scenes look at healthcare legislation and DC politics.
  • Major Gen. Vincent “Vinny” Boles, USA (Ret.): Major Boles, a retired Army Major General who led a contingency command in the wake of 9/11, will discuss how America's Army has historically developed leaders and teams to function at their highest performance levels under the most stressful of conditions – illustrating how healthcare professionals can apply some of those strategies as they lead their teams. 

The Healthcare Supply Chain Summit is an intensive, three-day event offering a wealth of information, expertise, networking opportunities and inspiration for all parties in the healthcare supply chain—providers, suppliers, distributors and GPOs—and across all levels of the organization, from strategic to tactical. The Summit fosters a collaborative environment, encouraging an open dialog to look critically at ways to leverage technology and adopt modern processes and best practices to help the industry achieve cost savings, strengthen organizations and improve patient safety. Attendees can save 20 percent on registration through Jan. 31, 2016.
