The speakers presented two interesting ways to improve the value of what hospitals purchase. The first is to combine procurements in a large association to improve benchmarking of products and to increase savings. The second is to assign a monetary value to quality criteria. Both have really good track records in Europe, and both could help hospitals here get even better performance.
