Group purchasing organizations (GPOs) use collective buying power to obtain significant discounts from vendors. Throughout the years, GPOs have developed a number of innovative contracting practices that offer participating organizations considerable savings and volume discounts.
HPS combines the purchasing power of our members to negotiate contracts, keeping costs down and increasing savings. We offer a broad range of products to meet any organization’s needs, from hospital equipment and food service, to design consulting and furniture. If your business needs it, we can get it for you at an exclusive member rate.
Reducing Supply Costs
HPS has a number of proven programs to help control costs in every department within your organization. Whether you need a contract for copy paper or for flu vaccine, HPS has a contracting solution for you.
The HPS regional contract portfolio includes dozens of highly competitive contracts that have been negotiated and decided upon by your peers. Our advisory committees made up of volunteers from member organizations diligently analyze offerings from a variety of suppliers and ultimately choose vendor partners which they feel will best serve the HPS membership.
In addition, HPS’ partnership with MedAssets allows members to access its competitive national portfolio of agreements. MedAssets seeks to control its customers’ supply expenditures for commodity supplies, pharmaceuticals, and capital equipment through customized supply chain solutions. MedAssets negotiates and administers supply agreements for over $12 billion of annual purchases on behalf of its customers. Proprietary information technology tools enable customers to implement negotiated supply prices into a more controlled procurement process and to achieve item standardization.
As a member of HPS, you have access to all of the contract information online, meaning you can access pricing and contact information for our vendors at any time, from anywhere. Having this information in black and white also takes the confusion out of group purchasing, allowing you to browse your options and take control of your vendor relationships. Additional online tools include audit capabilities, form tracking and purchase
volume data reports.
With a comprehensive regional and national portfolio, superior customer service and technology that makes managing your membership simple, truly, HPS offers your organization the complete package.
HPS has partnered with many different organizations and provides a variety of options to serve the membership. Our member-run advisory committees have made contract awards to the vendors they thought would best serve the HPS membership. In addition, HPS is a dealer for a wide variety of manufacturers through our furniture, finishes and equipment program and the HPS Design Center.
Request an Evaluation
We are confident that we can save you money, but we don’t expect you just to take our word for it. An evaluation on your current purchases is the best way to see if an HPS membership is right for your organization. We can compare your current costs to the pricing on our competitive contracts and give you an easy to read comparison to let you see the all-important bottom line.
