GHX Reveals Roadmap to Stronger Healthcare Community at GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit
Date:5/8/2012

ORLANDO, Fla., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grappling with economic uncertainty, financial and regulatory pressures and impending reform, the healthcare industry is on the cusp of major changes, said Bruce Johnson, president and CEO of GHX, during the opening session of the 2012 GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit. More than 800 healthcare leaders from hospitals, manufacturers, GPOs and distributors gathered this week in Orlando for the annual Summit event.
