Annual Advocacy Report

Advancing Healthcare Distribution

The HIDA Advocacy Report highlights key government affairs victories and industry accomplishments that helped protect, advance and promote the interests of medical products distributors.

Government Affairs in Action

More than 72 distribution leaders met in D.C. for our annual Washington Summit. These members participated in more than 120 meetings with members of Congress and key staffers — a 20% increase from the preceding year.


HIDA continues to monitor key regulatory issues that affect the supply chain, including pandemic ‭preparedness, UDI compliance, MACRA requirements, and the shift to value based care.‬‬‬

Government Partnerships

HIDA will continue its successful partnership with federal and congressional leaders, and will support lawmakers ‬‭who listen to members of the healthcare supply chain through the HIDA Political Action Committee‬ ‭(HIDA PAC).‬‬‬‬‬
