1:00 pm – 2:00 pm Diversifying Your Manufacturing and Supply Chains for Success
Our industry’s manufacturing practices and supply chain makeup have shifted dramatically in the last few years due to the global pandemic. As a result, new pathways were discovered, efficiencies uncovered, and solutions created. This session will discuss the overall state of medical device manufacturing and supply chains from a global perspective, followed by a conversation of trends and best practices to consider as we move forward.
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm Seeing Green: The Value of Sustainability & ESG in Your Supply Chain
As responsible companies and good neighbors, we know that having environmentally friendly practices is the right thing to do. Can it also have bottom line positive impacts? In this interactive panel discussion, we will hear from three medtech companies ranging in size and at different stages of their sustainability/ESG journeys. The panel will discuss the lessons learned from their own in-house sustainability and ESG initiatives, from small daily choices to decisions with broad implications like material sourcing and vendor selection. Attendees will leave this session with a better understanding of sustainability/ESG considerations when setting up robust supply chains, including the questions to ask – of themselves and others.
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm The State of Contract Design and Manufacturing
2021 was a remarkable year for the global medical device industry. Just as healthcare systems were learning to cope with the enduring effects of the pandemic, ramping up procedures, and product demand, device manufacturers were hit by the most severe supply chain crisis in decades. This session will feature insight from Alira Health’s 2022 MedTech Contract Manufacturing Report, including an overview of the trends and meaning behind them, from one of the authors himself. Attendees of this session will also have ample opportunity to ask their questions in real-time.
