Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) today announced details of its 2021 GHX Summit 365. This year-round virtual learning event, kicking off in May in place of GHX’s annual in-person Summit, provides a platform for providers and suppliers to engage together to share best practices and enable networking across the industry. Conversations will focus on topics that are top of mind with healthcare stakeholders as we emerge from the pandemic with a shared goal of creating a more resilient healthcare ecosystem that delivers better patient care. Registration for Summit 365 sessions is free and can be found here: https://www.ghxsummit.com.
“COVID-19 made weaknesses in the healthcare supply chain a national conversation and taught us many important lessons related to building a more modern and resilient supply chain ready to withstand future stressors,” said Bruce Johnson, CEO for GHX. “It’s even more essential we create opportunities for healthcare stakeholders to assemble and share best practices and their vision for how supply chain will continue to advance in support of better patient care. We’re excited to help facilitate these important conversations throughout the year with GHX Summit 365.”
