Purpose/Objectives: Identity the pain points, common solutions and roadmap for change for traditional procurement organizations looking to adapt to the changing marketplace and Government policy agenda Introduce innovation procurement and provide real-world evidence of adoption

Methodology/Approach: Provide a level set on traditional procurement models, functions and organizations Itemize the systematic issues with the tradititional procurement function Identity the pain points, common solutions and roadmap for change Introduce innovation procurement Provide real-world evidence of adoption of innovation procurement methods

Finding/Results: Solutions to issues are rooted in process Strategic Sourcing / Strategic Procurement is an oxymoron in Healthcare - it doesn't have to be this way however Organizations have not evolved with the times - procurement of complex IT solutions or Solution-as-a-Service offerings require a higher level of sophisication and alternate engagement model from the procurement organization Fairness monitoring is analagous to a referee in a hockey game. The procurement officers are the players. So why is there often no coach?

Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: Innovation procurement is not the only solution to procurement challenges, nor is it the solution for all - we must crawl before we walk before we run However for those further along the maturity cycle, innovation procurement offers some truly powerful tools

140 Character Summary: Healthcare Procurement has gotten a bad rap. And not entirely undeservedly. However there are solutions for Healthcare organizations of all shapes and sizes.
