How Can Healthcare Companies Improve Demand Planning?

This unique working conference brings manufacturers, distributors, group purchasing organizations, and providers together to discuss ways to work together better to ensure product availability, improve forecasting, and better support patient care. Join us at the HIDA Supply Chain Visibility Conference!


Conference Highlights

  • What true “visibility” in the healthcare supply chain requires from trading partners, and how it impacts total costs for all stakeholders
  • How to improve demand signals so manufacturers receive the information required to produce the product quantities that are needed, without waste or shortages
  • What supply chain partners must do to prepare for and respond to hurricanes and public health events
  • Why it’s critical to gain better real-time understanding of consumption, expirations, back orders, and other factors impacting demand, and how to do it

Who Should Attend

  • Supply chain professionals, demand planners and forecasters, operations leaders, inventory management professionals, S&OP professionals, strategic/national accounts leaders
  • Manufacturers, distributors, health system supply chain leaders, group purchasing organizations (GPOs), and IT/solutions providers
  • Anyone else interested in improving demand visibility, forecasting, and inventory availability in the healthcare supply chain

...And Why

  • Collaborate to improve demand planning and ensure product availability
  • Guide the industry initiative to increase visibility and reduce shortages, disruptions, and waste in the supply chain
  • Connect with peers and trading partners to discuss demand planning challenges
  • Take-away ideas for ensuring your supply chain continuity
