Group purchasing advantage extended to providers

Free access offers savings on products, services

By Brooks Kary, supply chain strategy and contracts manager

As part of our partnership with medical providers, Salem Health is extending free access to our group purchasing organization Premier Continuum of Care contract portfolio program. Enrollment may offer major savings on products and services you buy every day.

This program includes:

  • Medical suppliesPremier Continuum of Care
  • Pharmacy
  • Food service
  • IT/Telecom
  • Office supplies and business equipment
  • Facilities (maintenance, repair and operations)
  • Laboratory supplies
  • Medical nutritional products and supplies
  • Housekeeping
  • Capital equipment (procurement and planning)
  • Administrative/HR solutions

Clinics already using McKesson distribution can continue this service, plus additional access to other offerings. Clinics and physician offices can access this same portfolio through a program called ProviderSelect: MD. Both programs offer measurable savings and opportunities for clinics to control and reduce supply procurement costs and related operating expenses. 

Scale matters: Premier is the nation’s largest group purchasing organization, leveraging its volume to bring your practice the best contract price.

Purchasing flexibility: Premier demonstrates choice for each physician practice to select products and services critical to specific needs.

Savings: Premier demonstrated an aggregated savings of 15% for most physician practices.

We will reach out to you in the coming weeks to offer and further explain the program.

Contact Brooks Kary or Kellye Lou Bouldin at 503-814-1010 for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
