BOSTON – Cohealo, a platform for health systems to track and share medical equipment, today announced that its chief executive officer, Todd Rothenhaus, will present a case study session at the annual conference held by the Association for Health Care Resource & Materials Management (AHRMM). The learning lab will discuss how a leading health system leveraged the sharing economy – a concept made popular by businesses like Uber, Airbnb, and TaskRabbit – to share high-value medical equipment across facilities and incorporate collective buying into their capital expense planning process.
The speaking session is part of the logistics & distribution conference track and will use customer experiences to provide practical insight into how to establish an equipment sharing program, protocols for safely moving equipment, and overcoming initial objections to sharing. Cohealo is available for further questions during exhibiting hours at booth 131.
The AHRMM annual conference is a leading education event and the central meeting place for providers, academics, affiliates, and vendors working in all facets of health care supply chain. Together, the program aims to expand the collective understanding of how to advance supply chain strategy and effectively manage the quality and affordability of care.
