Description:

This webinar discusses the health care supply chain, its strengths and weaknesses. It reviews best practices around the industry, including what Intermountain Healthcare has done with building its own logistics/distribution functionality. It will also present the implications of the future of the industry with the changing horizon that comes with the Affordable Care Act, including preparing to serve non-acute operations.
