Event description



The SCAN Health European Procurement Summit 2018 provides a rare opportunity to foster global dialogue and collaboration among key leaders and professionals in North America and Europe to examine the opportunity for innovative procurement models informed by real world evidence to achieve value for health systems globally. Partners and participants from industry, health systems, governments and academia, will bring their unique perspectives to this exclusive event to advance innovation procurement models informed by real world evidence emerging from supply chain infrastructure. Collaboration across global health systems will be explored for the potential to accelerate solutions to real world challenges such as patient safety and health system sustainability, informed by evidence of outcomes that achieves value for global populations. The SCAN Health European Procurement Event is generously hosted by NHS North West Procurement Development as a pre-event opportunity to the Excellence in Supply Awards 2018. These prestigious awards recognize private sector organizations working with the NHS for the delivery of high quality, effective and efficient patient care.


The one-day event profiles new evidence of innovation procurement practices based on real world evidence emerging from scale supply chain infrastructure across global borders. World renowned speakers from industry, health systems, government and academia share their insights into how supply chain infrastructure creates real world evidence to inform decisions and define value for populations.


Interactive presentations facilitated between expert panels and the audience, and breakout networking sessions enable the exchange of knowledge and expertise to build collaboration and leadership capacity across global health systems.


The exclusive event will include evidence of value of innovation procurement models, product registry collaboration across global jurisdictions to enable post-market surveillance of quality and safety outcomes; the engagement of clinician leadership in supply chain transformation; and the sharing of seminal research on the value, and the impact of integrated data systems and predictive analytics tools.
