​Health Care

A special group of health care-related corporate members takes advantage of our projects, conferences, and roundtables. Our health care roundtables focus on industry-specific issues, such as cost pressures, regulatory changes, medical informatics, drug competition, and other factors that affect quality of care, delivery, and operational efficiency. We discuss lean and technology-based process transformation best practices on health care procurement, operations, and supply chain methods.
