Shrujal Patel, Managing Partner at The Alinea Group, will be discussing pharmacy operational "best practice" standards, audit trends, and expansion strategies, outlining key aspects of the federal regulatory 340B program as it relates to compliance and strategies for effective implementation, program optimization, and ongoing management.

"The CHA quality and safety conference is an excellent opportunity for Alinea to provide thought leadership to some of the nation's most highly regarded children's hospitals," says Shrujal Patel, Managing Partner at Alinea. “In addition to delivering key observations we gain from working with children’s hospital clients across the nation, we look forward to having meaningful conversations with children’s hospital leaders to contribute ideas and solutions that help children’s hospitals better serve their community and address their most pressing needs.”

The Children's Hospital Association, comprised of more than 80+ children's hospital groups across the United States, assembles children’s hospital leaders to conduct sessions that address all aspects of the children’s health community. Alinea is a regular contributor to the Children’s Hospital Association conferences, speaking as subject matter experts in the areas of pharmacy operational improvement, revenue management, and healthcare strategy.
