Chet Damania - Senior Manager, Customer Solutions, Johnson & Johnson HealthCare Systems, Inc.
Procure to pay efficiency: Managing the complexities of “from order management to payment” in order to lean out the process, increase automation and collaborate to reduce waiting times and wastes. In this age of technology, transactions should be easy. Most industries can get an order placed and a shipment tracked in real time. This rarely, exists in healthcare. Our industry continues to create waste and frustration, and it’s a huge pain point while dealing with large customers who transact everyday with manufacturers and suppliers. How can we fix this?

5:25 pm - 5:55 pm The Move to Medical Device Formulary Models

David McCombs - Vice President, ERP/Supply Chain Operations, Bon Secours Health System
Health Care providers are moving from traditional open catalogue contracting and procurement approaches to the establishment of Medical Device formularies that provide clinicians and patients access to all clinically superior products, while eliminating “me-too” options that have no added clinical benefit but have higher costs. As Value Based Payment models expand through Bundled Payment and Direct Employer contracts for services, the formulary approach will increasingly be adopted by Health Networks and payors to insure affordable and predictable program cost. Learn how formularies are being developed and managed, and how a vendor needs to position themselves to be a thriving partner in these models versus “being on the outside looking in”.
