Vendormate, Inc. will present "Healthcare Reform and Stimulus Acts: Changing the Relationship Between Hospitals and Vendors", a webinar on May 15 at 2:00 p.m. EDT for healthcare vendors and hospitals. Michele Madison, a partner in the healthcare practice of Morris, Manning and Martin, LLP, will share her insights about how healthcare reform legislation affects hospital operations and what that means for vendors/suppliers.
"It's been two years since healthcare reform legislation passed Congress," said Ms. Madison. "Hospitals and healthcare vendors are still sorting through the impact. While most of the discussion has focused on expanded coverage and costs, the legislation contains elements that affect the underlying relationships between healthcare providers and their suppliers."
Ms. Madison will discuss how vendor and hospital relationships need to change in order to meet healthcare reform requirements. Additionally, she will talk about common pitfalls and how suppliers and providers can avoid them in the new healthcare landscape. The webinar will include time for questions and answers. Participants will also receive a white paper written by Ms. Madison on the impact of healthcare reform to healthcare provider and supplier relationships.
"We are pleased to host Ms. Madison for this webinar," said Bill Hayes, president and COO of Vendormate. "As we work with both hospitals and vendors throughout the U.S., we see a greater desire for understanding on both sides for what the other is facing in delivering healthcare services. Our goal at Vendormate is to give healthcare providers and suppliers increased transparency and information control as a foundation for collaborative and strategic relationships."
