GHX Presenting at AHRMM18 to Help Hospitals Improve Healthcare Effectiveness and Efficiency through Supply Chain Management


GHX shares how providers can leverage the supply chain to address
population health requirements, unlock data for decision making, utilize
advances in accounts payables, and increase overall automation

Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX)
is presenting on key opportunities for supply chain leaders to deliver
added efficiency and effectiveness to healthcare. Attendees of the AHRMM18
Conference and Exhibition
, August 12-15, in Chicago, will have the
opportunity to learn from GHX on four key topics: using supply chain to
manage population health; value-based decision making through data
integrity utilizing UDI; supply chain's role in helping to deliver the
organization's strategic financial and operational goals; and practical
ways to improve supply chain automation and drive contract compliance.

AHRMM18 attendees are also invited to GHX booth 551 focused on
transforming the healthcare supply chain for increased efficiency, lower
costs and, ultimately, better patient care.

"One of the important ways that GHX is helping to support the industry
is its leadership and participating in AHRMM's Cost-Quality-Outcomes
(CQO) Movement," said Karen Conway, vice president, Healthcare Value at
GHX, immediate past Chair of AHRMM and the current Cost-Quality-Outcomes
(CQO) Summit Task Force Chair. The 2018 CQO Summit Report on the
Clinically Integrated Supply Chain will be released on Monday, August 13
at 10:00 a.m. CT.

The two Learning Lab sessions GHX will present include:

Managing Population Health: A Supply and Demand Challenge
August 14, from 1:00–2:00 p.m. CT
Presenter: Karen Conway
health management has more to do with the social determinants of health
than clinical care. Increasingly, healthcare systems must work with
community organizations to develop and implement programs to meet those
needs. Conway will outline the skills required to inventory needs
(demand), identify available resources (supply), and contract for and
deliver those products and services in an efficient and affordable

UDI: Finding Value in the Real World
August 15, 8:00–9:00 a.m. CT
Presenter: Karen Conway
from volume to value-based healthcare requires better understanding of
what impacts both the cost and quality of patient care, including the
selection and use of supplies. Current regulatory activity is designed
to provide more data on the performance of medical devices in routine
clinical practice, which can be used to inform better purchasing
decisions, improve patient safety and reduce variation that negatively
impacts clinical and financial performance. Accessing and analyzing this
data requires hospitals to change how they help ensure the integrity of
product data across their own organizations and the entire medical
device lifecycle from manufacturer through to patients.

Additionally, GHX is presenting at two Strategic Sourcing Track sessions
in the Learning Pavilion:
