Event: 2018 Orthopaedic Manufacturing & Technology Exposition and Conference

Keynote Session: M&A, Value Analysis and Alternative Payments: Know What Drives Hospitals’ Orthopaedic Purchasing Decisions

The U.S. hospital landscape continues to be shaped by consolidation that is propelled by declining reimbursement, competition, and public and private payor cost and control measures. These trends are expected to endure into the foreseeable future, prolonging the tough economic considerations that hospital customers face along with the resulting impact on companies’ bottom lines. To survive and prosper in this changed industry, knowledge truly is power. Understanding the key drivers fueling customers’ purchasing decisions is key to making intelligent, informed decisions. For those seeking certainty in uncertain times, this keynote is a must-attend.
