Sean Poellnitz
Director of Contracting & Resource Utilization at CHRISTUS Health

Held on Wednesday, March 22nd

CHRISTUS Health does something unique from nearly every other large IDN: they publish their capital budget to suppliers.

This step towards transparency manifests itself in a series of Capital Town Hall meetings, where Sean Poellnitz, Director of Contracting & Resource Utilization, leads an audience of suppliers through details on the capital strategy, budget and decision making process. These meetings take a deep dive into the current state of the capital program, review new policies that influence the capital process and planning. In this session, Sean breaks down not only why they approach capital from a position of supplier transparency, but what benefits are accrued to both CHRISTUS and their supplier partners.
