Supply Chain Management In Healthcare

Balancing Healthcare Supply Chain Cost Control, Clinical Needs and Supplier Contracts Can Be Challenging

The challenges of managing supply chain in healthcare can distract from what your organization does best — providing first-class patient care. Pointcore leverages the breadth of the Premier GPO national portfolio with our regional contracting strength to help you realize the true value of a high-compliance aggregation group. Our unique regional contracting process engages your subject-matter experts to pursue clinically preferred contract offerings, which eliminates needless variation.

Additionally, we provide access to Premier’s powerful analytics platform. This tool enables you to gain clarity and utilize third-party clinical research to inform our healthcare supply chain contracting decisions. By handling a larger portion of your contracting needs, we help you free up valuable facility resources for impactful local initiatives.

What You Get With Our
Healthcare Supply Chain Services

Healthcare Supply Chain Management

  • Regionally-aggregated contract commitments target contract categories that are not well addressed by national GPOs. Plus, purchased services and physician preference categories are lacking nationally due to the inability to commit market share. This is where regional collaboration provides value to our members and vendor partners.
  • We manage a portfolio of contracts focused on price, service and strategic alignment. As a Premier Certified Sponsor of Affiliates, we help you navigate the Premier national contracts, the Premier AscenDrive Program and Pointcore regional contract portfolios.

Healthcare Supply Chain Collaboration

  • We understand the impact of potential changes on clinical preference. We help you navigate clinical differentiation versus redundancy.
  • Clinically-integrated contracting processes provide documentation to ease member conversions. We share relevant implementation strategies to reduce clinical disruption.

Healthcare Supply Chain Analytics Tools

  • Pointcore analytics tools include Premier’s Supply Chain Advisor as a primary contract search repository and Spend Dashboard as a spend analytics platform. (Electronic Supply Chain data transfer is a requirement.)
