2011 New England Supply Chain Conference and Exhibition - Tim Salaver Presentation

Driving Biotech Supplier-Distribution-Provider Collaboration for Cross Industry Operational Excellence
Tim Salaver, MBA, PMP, CSSMBB, Founder/EVP, Operations & Technology, Bio Supply Management Alliance

Healthcare costs in the United States are increasing at a faster pace than incomes. The industry has very little ability to influence its suppliers, or the prices it pays for products and materials. The solution is to drive greater collaboration between biotech manufacturers, distributors, and providers. This will increase operational efficiencies, eliminate waste, and ensure costs are market driven. Other industries have direct relationships between manufacturers and customers, and this session will identify key practices and performance benchmarks that the bio life sciences industry can utilize, leading to reduced costs in healthcare.
