Healthcare leaders will gather at the 2013 Amerinet Member Conference, May 19-22, 2013, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin in Orlando, Fla., to explore the latest trends in supply chain innovation, care delivery and healthcare reform and implementation.
“Reform is creating a much different dynamic in all healthcare markets, with consolidation, efficiency and reduced payments being a necessary part of the conversation,” said Todd Ebert, Amerinet president and CEO. “There is a real need to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

”We understand the challenges our members are facing every day, things like financial uncertainty, patient safety and quality, care for the uninsured and dealing with mandates brought about by healthcare reform,” said Ebert. “The conference provides them with a comprehensive understanding of the myriad of solutions that we can work with them to implement in both clinical and operational areas. To us it’s really about a building a customer-focused experience focused on value, choice and ease of use. ”
The meeting will also feature product evaluation labs for Amerinet members and suppliers as well as highlighting several new applications leveraging technology to enhance ease of use and accessibility for members.
