GHX to Present Strategies to Optimize Procurement, Especially of Physician Preference Items, at Annual AHRMM Conference

GHX will present strategies for optimizing procurement processes, especially around PPI, at the AHRMM 2010 Annual Conference & Exhibition, to be held Aug. 1-4 in Denver.

To highlight practical applications of effective PPI management within a provider organization, Dale Locklair, vice president, procurement and construction, McLeod Health, will lead in-booth discussions at Booth #401 on Monday, Aug. 2.
