2017 Event

This conference is designed to help attendees better understand value-based procurement and competitive dialogue, a great tool to implement value-based procurement. This year’s conference is the Western Canadian stop for this important event that has previously taken place in Toronto and Halifax.

This conference taught delegates how procurement can be one of the most powerful resources available to hospitals and other health care venues to help manage limited resources. Delegates came away with a sense of what the opportunities are and how they can embrace evolving procurement practices that can result in better patient outcomes and an enhanced bottom-line.
