Intalere Chief Executive Officer Julius Heil has worked in virtually every area of the supply chain over 30+ years - in healthcare and outside – locally, nationally and globally in areas including strategy, logistics, distribution and procurement. In this episode, we discuss:

  • His feelings about the new visibility of the supply chain and how it has emphasized its strategic importance, in healthcare and in general.
  • Some of the things the group purchasing industry and Intalere specifically are doing to help mitigate supply shortages, including some unprecedented cooperation.
  • How the challenges of the pandemic illustrate the importance of the GPO industry and the benefits it can provide.
  • Thoughts on what the next several months will look like and how providers can continue to be vigilant and prepared.
