The last two years have taught us that demand planning is critical to sustain clinical operations in times of heightened risk. In this panel discussion, leaders will examine how the strategies of providers, distributors and manufacturers have changed and how these changes will impact future planning. Will distributors carry more supply? Will providers carry more inventory? Will product lines be manufactured closer to home? How are we building transparency to map the greater supply chain from raw material to final product distribution? Discussion will continue focusing on the communication flow and approaches to demand planning models, challenges and relationships.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Consider the communication flow and how all organizations need to contribute to reduce risk
  2. Explain the demand planning strategies providers, distributors, and manufacturers are taking now including key metrics to help reduce risk in supply disruption
  3. Incorporate actionable short and long-term risk mitigation strategies into your current processes
