Supply Chain Challenges During COVID-19 and the Impact on Hospitals Today and in the Future

Thursday, June 4, 2020 | 10:30 am - 11:30 am CST

The perfect storm of the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the hospital supply chain in all areas of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) acquisition. Lack of PPE has forced hospitals to pursue expensive and unproven supply chain processes to acquire the necessary PPE for hospital staff. As hospitals reinstate elective surgeries, the pressure to provide PPE in surgery will cause even greater stress on the fragile PPE supply chain.

Join QHR Health’s Tony Bramer for a closer look at the unique issues that converged to disrupt the hospital supply chain for PPE.  He will discuss how to prepare for the additional strain on the supply chain and how to minimize the impact as your hospital begins to perform elective procedures.
