According to An Investigation of the Healthcare Supply Chain: Literature Review, “healthcare costs are expected to grow at a rate greater than that of the GDP, reaching almost $4.6 trillion and accounting for 19.6% of the GDP by 2019”.

Join F. Mike Busdicker for an over view of healthcare system-supplier partnerships that enhance capital planning process through:
-Including medical device organizations in HCP’s clinical engineering and supply chain process planning and equipment evaluation
-Assessing equipment inventory across the healthcare systems – having FS organizations/partners involved in HCP planning process
Join the debate about the evolutionary steps healthcare stakeholders can take to create industry standards and achieve the goal of multivendor interoperable systems
