Streamlining Healthcare


This year’s HIDA Streamlining Healthcare Expo & Business Exchange offers a range of networking and education events. Our goal is to give you more ways to meet, more companies to see, and fresh insights into today’s healthcare trends.

Here’s what’s new for 2018:

GPO & IDN Reverse Expo | September 27, 11:30am-1:30pm

HIDA puts the spotlight on senior level purchasing executives from GPOs, RPCs, aggregation groups, and IDNs at the first-ever GPO & IDN Reverse Expo. Over 30 participating companies will run the exhibit tables, while manufacturers and distributors walk the show floor.

GPO & IDN Executive Business Exchange (EBE)

At HIDA’s GPO & IDN EBE, leaders from over 40 GPOs and IDNs will host pre-scheduled, private meetings with other Streamlining Healthcare event attendees. Meetings are 20-minutes long, and held back-to-back to encourage direct, efficient discussions.

Education Session: Making the Case For Quality Products
