One of the unique aspects of membership in the Delta Purchasing Alliance (DPA) is the ability to network with your peers who are involved in health center purchasing and supply chain roles. While our annual DPA Purchasing Summit took a hiatus during the pandemic, we’re excited to bring back that program open to all DPA members.
If you’ve never attended the DPA Purchasing Summit, our goal is to bring together once a year our health center members so they can network with each other and learn more about supply chain and procurement best practices. The Purchasing Summit is an opportunity to bring in key DPA partners such as McKesson, NACHC Community Health Ventures, Vizient/Provista, Benco and others. This allows our health center staff the chance to meet one-on-one with our partners to learn about new opportunities, share any service/pricing concerns, and to get updates on upcoming savings opportunities.
The Purchasing Summit is open to health center purchasing managers, CFOs, supply chain staff or anyone at your health center who would benefit from networking with your peers engaged in procurement. Additional details on this year’s program, including a link to registration, are included later in this newsletter. The program is free of charge, so I hope you’ll consider joining us in Las Vegas this October!
As always, if you have any questions regarding your DPA membership, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have numerous preferred pricing programs available to all of you, and many procurement resources we can connect you with to make your day-to-day jobs just a little easier.
