The Healthcare Supply Chain Network (HSCN) is delivering a free webinar for those who were unable to attend the recent in-person innovation procurement toolkit (IPT) workshops. This webinar is designed to demonstrate how innovation procurement is a strategic enabler, focused on improving patient outcomes and increasing efficiency to the system while delivering value for money.


Similar to the in-person training, the webinar will combine lecture style delivery with hands-on skills labs to enhance your understanding of innovation procurement and provide guidance on how to use the IPT. We will focus on early market engagement strategies, outcome-based specifications and value-based evaluation criteria. On a virtual basis, you will mix with healthcare procurement specialists and other key stakeholders in a stimulating learning environment while acquiring a new set of skills.


Using a novel approach, the training has been structured as follows:





November 5, 2018

9:00 - 12:00 EST


Introduction and overview of the IPT

Key concepts

November 6 - 11, 2018

Virtual skills labs

Scenario based activities

November 12, 2018

Submission of workbooks


November 13 - 15, 2018

Facilitator review


November 16, 2018 

10:00 - 12:00 EST


Review of submissions and follow up discussion



Participants will learn core information through pre-reading the IPT and from information shared by the facilitator on day one of the webinar. Each participant will be issued a workbook and you will form virtual groups to work through two scenario-based activities targeting key concepts from the IPT. The facilitator will review and summarize responses, and at the second webinar, submissions will be reviewed and discussed by the group. Two weeks prior to the webinar, you will be provided access to the pre-reading documents.
