Brandi’s research aims to bridge the divide between providers and suppliers – focusing on innovative provider-supplier partnerships, provider purchasing trends, implications of health system consolidation, and risk-sharing contracts between providers and suppliers. Noted publications include Twelve Surprising Truths About Engaging Hospital Purchasers, What Your Hospital Customers Really Want, and Why You Should Care About Provider Integration.
