As IDNs continue to grow vertically and horizontally more pressures are being born by their supply chain. From constant margin pressure; to distribution challenges; to changing supplier models and platforms; to cyber threats; to increased demands to utilize data; to competitive demands that were unheard of five years ago; supply chains role within the IDN has grown exponentially. Continuing the discussion from Monday’s presentation in the Financial Operations Track we discuss these issues and many more.
