industry’s only committed-model GPO

HealthTrust Membership

More and more providers are making the switch to HealthTrust because our committed model offers the best value among GPOs of every size. Members have access to a broad portfolio of high-quality products and services they prefer to utilize, and a repository of best practices gleaned from our real-world operator experience.

Why HealthTrust

Operator Expertise

The subject matter specialists we deploy—to guide physician engagement and custom contracting, optimize supply chain practices and improve overall business performance—all have daily operator accountability.

Committed Model

On 85 percent of their typical spend, new members enjoy an immediate price advantage over every other GPO. That cost advantage averages 8 to 12 percent—with no contracting rework required—and the pricing is fixed for term.

Field-tested Solutions

The clinical initiatives and supply chain practices we promote have been proven in hundreds if not thousands of healing environments—including those operating under value-based payment programs.

Benefits of Membership

At HealthTrust, smaller facilities enjoy the same benefits as large IDNs—even non-acute care sites can access our purchasing power—and our non-healthcare GPO (CoreTrust) provides additional negotiating leverage in non-traditional spend areas. Members have no-cost access to identical pricing on commodities, as well as a medical device and purchased services portfolio that can be used to develop custom agreements.

HealthTrust’s committed model is powered by the aligned purchasing power of more than 1,400 acute care facilities, allowing us to negotiate the best deals with suppliers. In a growing number of categories, members enjoy the additional leverage provided by the 1,300 members of CoreTrust, our commercial GPO.

HealthTrust has teams of experts ready to assist providers in the areas of clinical and spend analytics, labor management, supply chain optimization, and custom sourcing of physician preference items and purchased services, in addition to a comprehensive suite of strategies for success under value-based payment programs. Through our Parallon affiliate we also help facilities better manage their health information technology and revenue cycle.

HealthTrust Physician Services, led by CMO Michael Schlosser, M.D., conducts clinical evidence reviews of new technology and physician preference items that include the input of practicing physicians from around the country, giving them a direct voice in how supplies, devices and pharmaceuticals get sourced and ultimately utilized. Physician advisors also serve on HealthTrust’s care redesign team targeting hospitals operating in value-based care environments.

Testimonials

HealthTrust offers countless tools and resources to assist me in making decisions regarding drug procurement and formulary control for my pharmacy and overall hospital operations. In light of healthcare reform and the new government guidelines for reimbursements, I’m able to aggressively keep costs down and make alternative decisions to address recalls and shortages to prevent compromised patient care.
