The TechNation Webinar Wednesday series continued in July with “Priorities for Today’s CE Leaders: Key Considerations for Defining Your Supply Chain Strategy.” The webinar was presented by Allina Health IS and Clinical Engineering Services Director Nadia Ayoubzadeh and Clinical Engineering Services Manager Mara Pare along with Erin Tournoux from webinar sponsor PartsSource.
Ayoubzadeh and Pare shared with attendees the process of identifying current pitfalls and opportunities, goals, strategy, RFP, and ultimately finding the right supply chain partner or partners. They provided an in-depth presentation that answered many frequently asked questions.
Tournoux added to the webinar with an informative presentation. She reviewed critical data and analytics necessary to certify an optimized procurement process along with vendor evaluation metrics that can be implemented in any clinical engineering department.
The webinar did a great job of outlining four key areas. It discussed project planning and approach, managing change within an organization, Allina’s RFP approach, as well as monitoring and project reporting.
Following the webinar, the presenters fielded questions from attendees sharing additional knowledge and insight.
More than 100 people viewed the webinar. The webinar was well received with many attendees sharing positive comments in their post-webinar survey.
“Webinars such as these are very helpful, especially in a small community hospital setting, where HTM professionals are few and far between,” Wayne P. wrote.
“These webinars go a long way to help the HTM field keep in touch and spread knowledge in a very cost-effective manner,” Mark F. wrote.
“I find TechNation as an excellent media to improve my knowledge in Med/Technology,” Juan E. wrote.
