Healthcare systems can no longer attempt to simply negotiate a better price when creating value in the supply chain. The key to increasing value is through more strategic supplier relationships. However, while the supply chain has long had technology to manage buyer-and-seller transactions, it has severely lacked tools for managers to build and manage their strategic supplier relationships.

Speaker Curtis McEntire is the president and founder of Mazree, an online B2B network built to connect and bridge the gaps between buying and selling organizations. In this webcast, McEntire will showcase innovative and real-world solutions for supply chain managers to utilize and drive value with their suppliers. He will educate attendees on supply chain technology, the challenges faced when managing supplier relationships, and what the future holds for the buyer-supplier relationship.

This webcast is eligible for AHRMM continuing professional education (CPE) credits for attendees. For more information, visit http://www.ahrmm.org/education/cpes/index.shtml

“Technology adds value to a supply chain management system, but the key way to increase value is through those buyer-supplier relationships,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of symplr “Curtis McEntire’s understanding of the B2B relationship and the solutions available to benefit both the buyer and supplier will help attendees better manage their supply chain and the relationships that are imperative to driving value.”
