Anna Ormiston, Head of GPO & Operations for Conductiv and Jeff Ashkenase, Group Vice President, End-To-End Supply Chain for Nexera have been named to the Journal of Healthcare Contracting's "Ten People to Watch in Healthcare Contracting" for 2021. Both Conductiv and Nexera are subsidiaries of Premier.

JHC: What project or initiative are you looking forward to working on?

Ormiston: We’re really excited to expand our analytics offering into the GPO. Our members have so much on their plates, technology that helps them more seamlessly gain operational efficiencies and cost savings can be a total game changer.

Our technology utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to achieve spend transparency, illuminate savings opportunities and optimize purchased services outcomes while tracking successes along the way. Members can see when they have an upcoming contract expiring, and we’re able to directly connect them with our contracted partners.

JHC: What’s the most challenging or rewarding project that you’ve worked on in the last 12 to 18 months?

Ashkenase: Managing the supply chains of 10 hospital systems in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area during a global pandemic was both the most challenging and rewarding work in my career as a healthcare supply chain executive.

Accounting for just shy of half of the total U.S. COVID-19 cases in April 2020, New York City emerged as the epicenter of the outbreak, with our health system partners struggling to access the supplies necessary to protect frontline workers and care for patients. There wasn’t enough personal protective equipment (PPE) and no playbook to follow for this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic and the supply chain challenges it created.

Our on-site teams worked 24/7 to support frontline caregivers and patients, addressing challenges in real-time and amid this rapidly changing environment. They showed unwavering commitment to enabling access to supplies, intelligence and technology so that providers focus on patient care.
