General Session – Welcome and SMI Updates
General Session – Keynote Presentation
The Ever-Evolving Healthcare Industry: Where are we now and where are we going?
Join us for our keynote presentation featuring Dr. Reed Tuckson, MD FACP, a leader in health equity, policy, and innovation. This session will highlight the key determinants that are shaping the evolving health care landscape. We’ll dive in to explore the causes; the health implications; and solutions pertinent to the erosion of trust in health care professionals and organizations. Dr. Tuckson will share his perspective on the relationship between the social determinants of disease and their evolving incorporation into new care delivery models as value-based reimbursement replaces traditional fee for service financing. And he will explore the implications and suggested interventions to achieve more equitable outcomes as care delivery increasingly moves from institutions and into community settings and homes supported by new, innovative digital technologies.
General Session – The Next Big Thing
What’s the Next Big Thing you need to know about? What do we need to do to be prepared to innovate and stay at the leading edge? Eric O’Daffer from Gartner will facilitate a discussion among SMI members based on input from experts in a variety of fields. Listen to the expert (via video) share their thoughts on the Next Big Thing, and then talk at your table about what each innovation might mean to healthcare and to your operation. There will be lots of creative brainstorming as we challenge our own assumptions about what’s coming next.

SMI Councils Update
Our SMI Councils have been doing some terrific work together, and they will each provide an update on their activities to date and what’s to come.
General Session – Driving Relationship Transformation: Changing How we do Business Together
Kate is recognized as an international authority on strategic business relationships and brings to SMI her expertise in the art, science, and practice of highly collaborative relationships. Kate will challenge you to change how you do business with your strategic business partners – sharing real-world examples across industries where transformed relationships have resulted in high-impact value for trading partners. We have left time at the end of Kate’s talk for an interactive barrier-busting Q&A where SMI members can challenge Kate with barriers they have experienced, and she will share best practices on how other organizations have overcome similar barriers.
This program will give SMI members insights to:
What do trading partners need to know from each other about new sourcing strategies? What should we be asking each other to improve our resiliency? This panel discussion will share insights from recent ASU research, while SMI members discuss how to source differently and strengthen trading partner relationships.
The labor market is tighter than ever. What can we do to find the best talent for our organizations? What can we do to retain the talent we already have? Join this session to learn about the Gartner model for Talent Management, how Mayo is using the model to create a best practice approach, and think about how this approach could apply to the challenges you’re facing in your organizations today.
The pandemic, supply chain disruptions and labor shortages have put a tremendous strain on the relationships between Providers and Suppliers. In this workshop we will discuss the changing relationship between Providers and Suppliers and the evolution of Strategic Partnerships; what does the future looks like, where are we going, what new elements should we consider and how should we be thinking differently?
Risk is part of everything we do. So, how do we manage it more effectively? This SMI member panel will share their thoughts on how they have developed organizational talent, capabilities and features to create a stronger resilient operation now and into the future. They will share new approaches to think about managing risk in trading partner relationships. Participants will share ideas and brainstorm how we can all work together to strengthen trust and reduce risk across the supply chain.
