Seemingly overnight, the COVID-19 pandemic upended supply chains around the world, but none was hit as hard or quickly as the healthcare supply chain. “PPE” became a household word and both alternative suppliers and gray markets were quickly setup to take advantage of the exponential increase in demand. Despite these challenges, supply chains have adapted and become agile; all done in days and weeks instead of months and years. Collaboration amongst competitors became the rule instead of the exception.
Join this all-star panel representing the full gamut of the healthcare supply chain from manufacturing and logistics to hospital purchasing. Featuring executives from 3M, Owens & Minor, and Michigan Medical, this panel will discuss the challenges, benefits and future of the healthcare supply chain in a post-COVID world.
