138: Provider-Supplier Collaboration to Address the Whole Health Care Experience

In Sg2 Perspectives episode 125, we focused on how the role of supply chain is changing and how the biggest trends impacting demand will have corresponding impacts on supplies and spend. In this week’s episode, Vizient Associate Principal Doug Beinborn, Sg2 Principal Chad Giese and Sg2 Associate Principal Lisa McGuire dig deep into those trends, specifically at the service line level. Doug, Chad and Lisa discuss provider-supplier partnerships, the value proposition and growth potential of new technologies, and the role of the patient/consumer.

There is a “changing of the guard” happening across the health care industry right now as many hospital and health system CEOs are retiring, making way for a new generation of health care leaders to take over.
