Good procurement and supply management practices in the Healthcare sector matter perhaps more than anywhere else. Procurement and supply chain managers in the healthcare sector are facing challenges from continually changing and highly demanding healthcare expectations where all the FIVE rights are critical. Not just getting the right goods to the right place at the right time to the right quality – but also at the right price.

The HealthProcure 2015 conference held in Melbourne on the 17-19 February addresses key challenges, including how to implement effective procurement models, innovation, stock inventory management and redesigned supplier-contractor relations.

Some of the keynote speakers at the conference will include Matt Mazzotta, Chief Procurement Officer at Queensland Department of Health who will share his experiences on how Queensland Health successfully transformed their supply chain in a competitive market and optimised their procurement practices.

Alba Chliakhtine, Director Procurement at Health Purchasing Victoria will provide insights on the impact of general trends and challenges that are affecting health procurement productivity and Natalie Budovsky, Head of Strategic Sourcing at Healthdirect Australia will help procurement managers discover different approaches to implement procurement systems, models and strategies.

Key benefits of attending will include:

•    Learn how to implement high value procurement models and strategies
•    Hear case studies from industry leaders and how they are benefitting from reformed supplier and contract management
•    Discover how to build more efficient stock inventory management
•    Identify specific health procurement skills to improve procurement process
•    Improve quality outcomes by introducing innovation and ICT procurement systems
•    Create cost reduction strategies to meet budget expectations

The HealthProcure 2015 conference will see the largest gathering of supply chain and procurement managers from private and public hospitals, aged care operators, government departments to meet and learn about the newest developments in health procurement across the whole healthcare sector with unique case studies, interactive panel discussions and through keynote presentations.
