Driving Value in Healthcare Through Supplier Collaboration | Episode 11 | Listen Here

In this episode of Illuminated Path, host Evan Danis welcomes guest Todd Larkin, Chief Operating Officer of Intalere. 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 IMB, 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. Larkin talks about predictability as a key value for supply chain – having visibility to demand before it occurs in order to avoid supply shortages and disruptions to patient care.
