Wednesday, September 27, 2017

The GHX Supply Chain Summit provides three days of learning, collaborating and networking. Each year following the Supply Chain Summit, we take some of the highest rated sessions and offer the opportunity to hear from those speakers again in a webinar. We are happy to announce three new webinars featuring guest speakers from the 2017 Summit. Topics range from data management and driving value from data to implementing standards for UDI to vendor and business associate risk management. You can begin signing up for the webinars now.

Details of upcoming webinars:

UDI in the Healthcare Delivery Environment: Stanford Health Care's Journey

The industry is changing, making it necessary to stay ahead of the adoption curve where data standards are concerned. Many are intimidated by the prospect of this work but having realistic expectations increases the likelihood of success. Jim Booker of Stanford Health Care will describe the iterative process taken, challenges and work yet to be done on the data standards journey – the end is worth the effort.

Data Management: Operationalizing Best Practices and Driving Value from Data

Dirty data undermines your operational and financial performance goals but item data changes so frequently (and you are managing so much more data now) that data management is a constant process. Hear four different perspectives from Oregon Health & Science University, Virginia Mason Hospital & Medical Center, Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Catholic Health. These organizations each have a story to tell – going from lots of questions about their data to an actionable plan with proven results.

Vendor Management: The Bigger Picture

Discussion on industry best practices for identifying business associates and managing vendors to meet your compliance goals is primary in this webinar. Collaboration is key! Gain insight to how top performing organizations are going after their compliance goals.
