The Affordable Care Act has brought major change to the healthcare delivery system in the United States. A key to driving success is developing positive and impactful leadership. The 2013 Fall IDN Summit (September 24 – 26, 2013, Arizona Biltmore, Phoenix, AZ) will focus on the leadership challenges faced by supply chain leaders and the opportunities arising from these challenges for revolutionizing care delivery for IDNs and health systems.

Strategic Insights Track: Acronym soup!
A Discussion on Big Data and Business Intelligence | 3:45 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
“Big data” is all the buzz these days. This vast storehouse of information can be turned into actionable insight with the right business analytics. Healthcare is rapidly moving towards becoming more connected and accountable. Technology is required to integrate data across the continuum and health systems are increasingly using big data today to understand physician practicing patterns and improve performance. In this session, presenters will describe how big data is impacting their facilities and what tactics they are using to leverage data as a strategic asset to make patient care and operations better.

Idea Exchange: Collaborating with Physicians | 10:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
The ACA is changing the paradigm in regard to physician involvement in the supply chain. Collaborating with physicians is a dynamic unique to the healthcare supply chain. In this Idea Exchange we will explore methods that can foster an improved climate with physicians to achieve mutually beneficial goals of improved, affordable patient care. As IDNs become more complex, how we improve our physician collaboration may be the difference between success and failure. Join us in finding ways in which we can improve this all important aspect of managing the healthcare supply chain.
