SEPAC, Inc. - LinkedIn - Twitter - Facebook

SEPAC is looking forward to the spring time weather and offering up some real valuable education sessions. To kick off the season, we will be holding a Panel Discussion – To Rep or Not to Rep! Is the Rep-less Model Viable? March 19, in Philadelphia, PA.

How much influence do sales representatives wield in the procedural health care setting? Is their presence necessary during surgical procedures? Does this get disclosed to the patient? Do hospitals require informed consent? How does the rep’s presence effect the dynamic of the procedure? Device reps have not historically been scrutinized the same way as pharmaceutical salespeople, whose role has been significantly reduced in the past decade. Visit our website for all the details and to register.  

It is also time to register for the AHRMM national conference where SEPAC will be offering some scholarships for you to attend. So please attend a SEPAC meeting, visit the website and if you haven’t already, please sign up to be on our email distribution. This will insure that you don’t miss an important announcement or special event.

North Texas AHRMM

NTAHRMM recently launched a new website, allowing members to access current news, Board information and past events. The new site also includes a platform for easily processing renewal and new membership requests. During the February member meeting, we shared that two events are currently being coordinated – the Spring Event at the Horse Races and the Harvest Fest in the Fall. We look forward to sharing more details to the chapter members soon.

As we focus on membership, our Membership Committee Chair, Mark Keiser, shared that we will be organizing meetings with health system leaders to encourage participation. And, we will engage the local universities to offer opportunities for students pursuing supply chain and/or health care degrees to get involved in the chapter. This will provide educational opportunities and networking for these students and allow them to better understand the health care. 

David Gillan with Vizient presented on Trends Impacting Health care in February. This topic of discussion resulted in chapter members sharing experiences associated with management of agreements, understanding big data and how to navigate for effective analytical outcomes.

Our Education Committee Chair, Tim Martin, is working on developing an event or workshop to allow members the ability to learn more about Project Management.  

Our next member meeting will be held at the Parkland Stemmons Location on Thursday, March 21.
