Supply Chain Visibility Conference
Supply Chain Visibility Conference
February 9-11, 2022 | Bonita Springs, FL

How Can Healthcare Companies Better Align Supply And Demand?

The Supply Chain Visibility 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. Launched in 2019, this unique working conference provides an opportunity for dialogue and a venue for identifying and advancing best practices that improve supply chain resilience and visibility.

The COVID-19 Pandemic Has Added Urgency To The Effort

This year’s conference is more important than ever – a chance to examine lessons from the pandemic and use them to advance visibility and readiness in the healthcare supply chain. The Supply Chain Visibility Conference is an established event that provides an ideal venue for discussing these challenges and advancing preparedness.

Conference Highlights

  • What the pandemic has revealed about supply and demand alignment in healthcare
  • What true “visibility” in the healthcare supply chain requires from trading partners
  • How supply chain partners must prepare for and respond to future outbreaks, hurricanes, and public health events
  • Why it’s critical to build more flexibility and surge capacity into the supply chain, and how to do it
