Virtual Roadshow | How to Maximize your Strategic Sourcing and Actively Engage Your Key Stakeholders


Preparing your healthcare organization for successful value analysis is no easy task. This program in ECRI’s Elevating the Value Analysis Process Educational Series will focus on Strategic Sourcing and identify why it is important to place a larger focus on “the big picture” to achieve long-term cost savings and opportunities, versus placing sole focus on conventional purchasing strategies for reducing costs.

Strategic Sourcing, if done right, should focus on improving the total cost of ownership. Are you currently meeting this goal?

The ECRI subject matter expert team, joined by an ECRI peer leadership panel, will explain a stronger path to get there and how to better optimize the Sourcing process. The event discussion will focus on wide-ranging topics including:

  • the importance of price benchmarking
  • mining your spend
  • better prioritizing your opportunities
  • understanding when and where to bid
  • how to balance supplier relationships
  • how to attract internal key stakeholders during the process

This free meeting series is open to hospitals and health systems and will be helpful to individuals in supply chain and value analysis, as well as payer organizations.

Learning objectives

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to: 

  • Understand the appropriate processes and structure necessary to reach a more sophisticated level of strategic sourcing while actively engaging stakeholders in various operational capacities
  • Gain a better understanding of proven best practices for sourcing employed by healthcare industry peers
  • Explore how to leverage the combined power of ECRI’s suite of Sourcing tools and verifiable resources (Sourcing for Supplies, Sourcing for Capital IT, Purchased Services) integrated with ECRI Value Analysis Workflow solution
