Affordable Healthcare Act - are you focused in the right direction?

Are you headed in the right direction?

The theme of the 2013 Spring IDN Summit & Reverse Expo conference was “Fostering Accountability,” but the underlying tone of the presenters was transformation.  It is well documented that the Affordable Care Act is changing and challenging everything around the healthcare continuum.  What is interesting to note is the role of the supply chain executive/manager is being elevated to a more strategically aligned position within most if not all healthcare organizations.


The executives I have interacted with are working to distance themselves and their organizations from the day of the request for pricing (RFP) driven processes.  Although price will always be part of the equation, the supply chain executives are now charged with the responsibility of leading their organizations to value driven partnerships that support their organization’s mission of care:

These values are not just top of mind anymore – but mission critical.


For me, this confirms aligning with the right partners who understand the challenges facing healthcare today is critical.  Challenge – deepen your understanding of the affordable care act. This will not only help you and your family prepare for the future but will improve your understanding of the challenges faced by healthcare professionals today.
