Government/Medicare costs escalating Hospitals need to reduce costs Influx of Low Cost suppliers Reinventing themselves into more of a consultants role Separating categories into smaller product groups Most awards are multi/dual source awards versus sole Did you know… Today, virtually every hospital in the U.S. belongs to at least one GPO. More than 70% of all hospital purchases are made through GPO contracts, and GPOs contract for purchases with an annual value in the range of $150 billion Why Do GPOs Exist? GPO agreements enable ABC Company access to their members Access enables Field Sales teams to convert, standardize, and consolidate vendors to reach GPO voting members in both committed and non-committed accounts Penetration and presence in accounts allow ABC Company to introduce new technologies that build leverage and disrupt the competition Pricing integrity and profitability are maintained for GPO members of like size and compliance ability GPO Defined GPO (Group Purchasing Organization) Group purchasing organizations (GPOs) were created to help hospitals and other providers to pool their purchasing power to secure significant discounts on virtually all medical and other hospital supplies. Negotiates pricing/contracts on behalf of its members with the objective of lowering overall costs Hospital pays GPO an annual fee to negotiate on their behalf Manufacturers pay GPO’s a fee to market their agreements to the hospitals and drive compliance Large IDNs and Systems typically are the owners of the GPOs As the GPO’s membership expands, its ability to leverage purchasing power decreases Today’s GPO Landscape GPOs are enabling their members to establish geographical buying groups Embracing coalitions and collaboratives which are driving standardization Providing greater transparency to our pricing via intranet tools Educating Integrated Healthcare Networks (IHNs) on best practices .that focus on enhanced collaboration between physicians and supply chain Add Ascension Health logo Today’s GPO Landscape GPOs are trying to reinvent themselves to ensure they bring value to their memberships Embracing coalitions and collaboratives which are driving standardization Providing greater transparency to our pricing via intranet tools Educating IHNs on best practices .that focus on enhanced collaboration between physicians and supply chain Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) A network of facilities and providers working together to offer a continuum of care to a specific market or geographic area (also referred to IHN-integrated healthcare network) Developed in the early 1980s, IDNs emerged to address common concerns like capitation, excess capacity, decreased margins, and complaints from patients regarding access Frequently, the GPO contracted price is seen as the starting point for IDN/vendor negotiations Self contracting by IDN;s is on the rise: this trend started with commodities and is now picking up speed with physician preference items Includes many types of associations across the continuum of care and one network may include a short- and longterm hospital, HMO, PHO, PPO, home health agency, and hospice services.

Local Agreements Used when the volume and compliance of an IDN, Purchasing Coalition or Hospital exceeds the highest tier offered on a GPO contract that they may request special pricing that is better than the agreement. In these cases, an local agreement is negotiated directly between ABC Company and the IDN, Purchasing Coalition or Hospital. These agreements typically are an extension of the GPO agreements and we pay the same administrative fees to the GPO. In rare instances we may pay fees to the IDN, Purchasing Coalition or Hospital. Please consult your National accounts team before entering into any local agreements. Fees range from 1-3% depending on whether contract is sole, dual or multi-source. These agreements will be driven by the Strategic Accounts Team or Sales Leadership. Re- work too much text .

This is not just focused on price, but total cost. Hospitals and Health Systems are hiring sourcing consultants to handle the sourcing and live bid process of many expense categories to create a more transparent and flexible marketplace. The process is all done through a hospital and supplier online portal. This on-line negotiation and bidding platform provides the flexibility to source nearly every expense category in a hospital, allowing clients to negotiate contracts during a live-bid Re-and work muchand text . suppliers. process.
