Supply Chain Savings for Larger Community Hospitals

Put CHC Supply Trust to work for your hospital. CHC Supply Trust understands that larger hospitals and health systems, despite their purchasing power, face unique supply-chain challenges and concerns. Chief among those concerns is finding a GPO that’s as trustworthy and attentive as it is effective at delivering the best products and services at the best value. Bringing experience and expertise to larger hospitals across the U.S. and beyond, CHC Supply Trust is the right strategic partner for these complex organizations, leveraging their size and spend to maximize savings while providing highly personalized service and securing stakeholder buy-in.

Addressing Current and Future Needs

COVID-19-induced supply chain shortages underscored the need for supply chain efficiency and resiliency. Hospitals must optimize their supply chain to better prepare for disruptions, reduce supply chain waste and help offset rising costs.

More than 140 independent hospitals across the country already access CHC Supply Trust for GPO services, strategic insights and our ability to meet su

pply needs during times of disturbance. We are prepared to alternatively source product in the event of supply chain disruptions by seeking alternative sourcing and prequalifying and onboarding suppliers that can fill in as needed. We can also help hospitals save on purchased services by aggregating volume across multiple hospitals.

Greater Power Through Partnership

CHC Supply Trust partners with HealthTrust Performance Group, a leading national GPO, to grant hospitals of all sizes access to preferred pricing on clinicianrecommended products and services. Many larger hospitals could be achieving better pricing and bigger savings through CHC Supply Trust, regardless of their current situation, even if they belong to a group, or are part of an affiliation.

The sheer volume of products and services a larger hospital uses almost guarantees there are further savings opportunities—if you know where to look. At the same time, the complexity of a larger hospital’s supply chain, operations, and organizational chart can make this discovery process a challenge. With broad and deep experience in supply chain and materials management—rounded out by data analysis, contract negotiation, and hospital operations expertise—CHC Supply Trust and our HealthTrust colleagues understand how larger hospitals operate and what their leaders require.

For hospitals with an annual supply spend of $20 million or more, CHC Supply Trust typically identifies additional savings of at least 10 percent initially on the exact items the hospital is already purchasing.
