IRVING, Texas, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The industry's leading self-contracting company, aptitude LLC, has announced their first annual user forum, access18, which is now open for registration. The user forum will cultivate a networking and learning environment for healthcare providers and suppliers to discover new opportunities to enhance their supply chain performance.
The event, which will be held in conjunction with the Fall IDN Summit, takes place on September 16th, 2018 in Phoenix, AZ at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and is open to healthcare providers and suppliers who wish to hear how peers are improving their contracting processes while discussing improvements for business operations across the industry.
"We've seen a desire for supply chain professionals to gather and dive deeper into the process of sourcing products and services – where it can be improved and how can we get better at what we do," said Justin J. Hibbs, vice president of marketing and business development. "With access18, we hope to create an environment that encourages those discussions and then determine a course to act on the recommendations together."
Beginners, power-users, and new customers are all invited to attend access18. Supply chain professionals from across the country will hear from the aptitude team, and each other, as they participate in knowledge-sharing and structured feedback sessions.
As organizations that benefit both healthcare suppliers and providers, aptitude and IDN Summit have built a relationship over several years and continue to offer their unique and valuable resources to the healthcare supply chain.
In April aptitude commemorated five years in the industry as a healthcare innovation leader, developing a reputation for working closely with providers and suppliers to improve the way they are doing business. Since launching in 2013, aptitude has eclipsed $1B in transaction volume and has thousands of active users and organizations benefiting from their self-contracting solution.
