We know that supply chain leaders are best suited to lead CQO initiatives for their organizations. However, the way to begin applying CQO principles to everyday operations—and then ingrain these practices across a health system—remains a question for many. This series will provide best practices for how to ready your supply chain program for value-based care and get to the intersection of CQO.

As part of these discussions, the presenters will go into greater detail on the areas of supply chain operations that are most closely tied to a value-based environment, including capturing and applying alternative data sets, establishing a clinically integrated supply chain, and creating an outcomes-based contracting strategy.
