What is WAHRMM

The West Region AHRMM (WAHRMM) is a regional collaboration between the Arizona, Colorado, and Utah chapters of the Association of Healthcare Resources and Materials Management (AHRMM).  AHRMM is the national professional association for healthcare supply chain professionals including providers (hospitals), suppliers (vendors) and group purchasing organizations (GPOs).


WAHRMM was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic when chapters were no longer able to meet in person.  This created a stark choice for local chapters: 

1) wait until the pandemic ended for in-person meetings and risk member loss


2) create and produce virtual conferences to maintain chapter engagement

We decided to go with option 2.

We realized that if one chapter was going to go to the task of creating a virtual chapter conference, there was no need for each chapter to reinvent the wheel and create their own.  We could just as easily use technology to create a single, joint event which would conserve resources, distribute responsibilities and gather knowledge at a critical time. 

During the pandemic, WAHRMM conducted nine (9) individual 2-hour long conference sessions.  We featured leading supply chain experts from providers, vendors and state governments in Arizona, Colorado and Utah.   We expanded our knowledge, developed relationships and discovered the value of embracing our regional expertise.

The WAHRMM website was developed as a collaborative effort  so we could share resources, unify our message and expand our reach, while retaining our local identity and independence.  Each WHARMM Chapter has their own subpage within this site.   

We invite you to explore out website to learn more about our individual chapters, our regional collaboration and our national organization.  We also invite you to become sponsors of our each of our chapters.  

Sponsors and members come from a diverse group of providers, suppliers, and GPO's and share a common interest in professional development and industry advancement. Join today to gain access to an entire network of potential partners and business associates and learn more about the field of Healthcare Supply Chain.
