8:55 am - 9:25 am Fireside Chat | Opening the Curtains, Pharma From the Perspective of the Care Provider

Steve Kiewiet - Vice President, Supply Chain BJC HealthCare
In healthcare, providers get very little access to manufacturers, and in most cases, manufacturers are pretty far removed from patient care under the current wholesaler model. There is an opportunity to improve that as models and strategies are on the edge of disruption. Additionally, federal regulations are increasingly treating hospital pharmacies like manufacturers and providers are now most at risk in these transactions, leading to the rise in IDNs starting their own manufacturing programs, specialty pharmacies and self-distribution models. What do pressures look like internally for hospital systems? How will supply chains need to adapt to better support providers and patients? Heads of Supply Chain from transformative IDNs will weigh in on current market pressures and disruptions, including:
•Serialization and mandates for buyers of products
•Evaluating and operationalizing 503B programs
•Self distribution models to drive efficiencies, mitigate risk and achieve savings


Steve Kiewiet

Vice President, Supply Chain
BJC HealthCare

Many feel that the next 5-10 years will be transformational for what we’ll all come to expect for healthcare delivery. From customer expectations around free and fast delivery, rising costs of healthcare and an aging population, the complexities of personalized medicines and more, healthcare distribution and delivery are on course to be completely disrupted. In this Town Hall, healthcare providers and manufacturers will share their thoughts on the biggest factors that will impact healthcare delivery and distribution in the future. Join the conversation and pose questions to the speakers and offer your own thoughts on changes that can be made now to better support distribution and delivery in the future.

What is the best way to get acquainted with a particular region or country?
