Driving Value in Healthcare Through Supplier Collaboration Subject of Newest Intalere Illuminated Path Podcast
St. Louis (September 23, 2019) - Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, today announced the release of Episode 11 of its Illuminated Path Podcast Series, featuring Intalere Chief Operating Officer Todd Larkin offering insight on Driving Value in Healthcare Through Supplier Collaboration.
Larkin was recently named in The Journal of Healthcare Contracting as one of the “Ten People to Watch in Healthcare Contracting.” Armed with his experience at Express Scripts, MasterCard and IBM, Larkin has quickly utilized his skills in contracting, procurement and supply chain management to transform Intalere’s strategic relationships with supplier partners.
In this episode, Larkin addresses the common misconception that healthcare supply chain is just about cost reduction. He touches on the need for providers to engage with suppliers in different ways and the fact that finding new ways of doing business and innovative partnerships are essential to the evolution of healthcare. For example, “Predictability is a key value for supply chain – having visibility to demand before it occurs in order to avoid supply shortages and disruptions to patient care,” he said.
