We’re proud to announce that Health Proc Europe Association, EHPPA and Nevi have joined forces. Since the pandemic, hospital and healthcare procurement has taken on an unprecedented importance. That is why we have co-developed the first European Masterclass in hospital and healthcare procurement.

We will combine expertise, improve performance and provide participants with a strategic position in the European healthcare procurement market. Elisa Frenz, Managing Director at Health Proc Europe Association: “The pandemic has identified gaps and accelerated the need to explore opportunities in hospital and healthcare procurement; we’re excited to be at the leading edge”.

"Procurement is increasingly on the board's agenda. The healthcare sector is facing challenges to keep healthcare affordable. This is not only a Dutch problem but also affects healthcare in Europe. Therefore, not only the cooperation with procurement professionals in the Netherlands is important, but also the connection with procurement professionals all over Europe. Let's share knowledge and make healthcare stronger", says Maarten Bougie, Director Business Relations & Marketing at Nevi.

“Professional education and training in procurement is more than ever a necessity for the healthcare sector. Nevi can play a consolidating role by providing the procurement sector with professional concepts”, according to Danny Havenith, EHPPA Board Member. 
Jeroen Hulsman, Director Product Development & Operations at Nevi: “By connecting our networks, professionals, latest knowledge and insights from both healthcare and procurement in a tailored program, we want to make a concrete contribution to dealing with the challenges that the healthcare sector faces today.”

The masterclass, which will  takes place on November 25-26 in Zeist, The Netherlands has been co-developed by Prof. Dr. Frank Rozemeijer and Prof. Dr. Karsten Machholz in cooperation with executives from HPE & EHPPA. The masterclass aims to upgrade the healthcare procurement competencies of participants in response to current challenges. Beyond the pandemic, the are already challenges on the horizon for hospital and healthcare buyers. For example: the ongoing persistent cost pressure, further intensified by corona and the digitalisation of procurement. Procurement in healthcare is gradually receiving the attention it has long had in other sectors. Seeing the opportunity in healthcare procurement as a game changer, our motivation was to pave the way together with hospital and healthcare buyers. That is why we have established the first European Masterclass in hospital and healthcare procurement.
