James Piplios

Group General Manager - Procurement

10:20 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Overcoming Challenges in Healthcare Procurement

Supply chains in hospitals can account for as much as 30% of total hospital costs, which can have a profound impact on procurement effectiveness across capital works and Goods & Services. But how can hospitals deliver high-quality but affordable services in a continually changing market that faces sustainability pressures? This panel will explore key challenges, considerations and strategies to drive procurement effectiveness and better visibility to optimise clinical outcomes and cost savings.

  • Maintaining the dynamic balance between reducing costs and providing high quality care
  • Exploring intestate opportunities to collaborate and achieve commercial efficiencies
  • Redesigning your supplier-contractor relations through more collaborative governance
  • The role of innovation, market intelligence and data in procurement
