Aggregating Spend to Reduce Costs

We leverage our scale and aggregate our committed spend to reduce your cost.

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

The challenges of maintaining a healthcare supply chain 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.

We also provide Premier’s robust analytics platform to help you gain clarity to use third-party clinical research to guide our contracting decisions. By taking on a larger portion of your contracting needs, we allow you to free up valuable facility resources for impactful local initiatives.

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.
