Leveraging Pandemic Lessons To Build A More Resilient Supply Chain

Learn from experts in the field at HIDA’s Supply Chain Visibility Conference, June 21-22

Alexandria, VA, May 11, 2021 - The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the U.S. healthcare supply chain is strong, but needs to be more resilient to adequately respond to sharp spikes in demand for medical products.

In a June 21 session, “Leveraging Pandemic Lessons To Build Resilience,” Owens & Minor Senior VP Matt Gattuso, Concordance Healthcare Solutions CEO Lisa Hohman, and HIDA’s President and CEO Matthew J. Rowan and VP of Government Affairs Linda Rouse O’Neill will address ways to achieve a more robust supply chain. Their discussion will address how a flexible pandemic response infrastructure includes managed stockpiles, nearshored manufacturing, and avoids surge-driven competition.
