Integrity & Culture

Values-based ethics and compliance is a vital part of the HealthTrust culture. We strive to support the compassionate delivery of healthcare and act with absolute integrity in the way we conduct ourselves and our business. This is true of our leadership, our employees and the suppliers with whom we choose to do business.

HealthTrust was one of nine GPOs that founded the Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative (HGPII) in 2005. HGPII promotes and monitors the best ethical and business practices in purchasing for hospitals and other healthcare providers.

As a leader in the industry, HealthTrust established a business relationship statement that outlines our expectations for supplier conduct. Signing this statement is required as part of becoming a contracted supplier with HealthTrust.

On an annual basis, HealthTrust responds to questions in an annual public accountability questionnaire. This report is available to the public and is used by HGPII to ensure adherence to its ethical and business principles.

*“New technology” is classified as a product that, as compared to existing products:

  • Offers significant technological advancements,
  • Improves clinical outcomes or patient care in a significant way (i.e., documented reduction in procedure times, outcomes, lengths of stay, readmissions, infection rates), or
  • Streamlines work processes and/or the economics of facility operations in a significant way (i.e., increase or decrease expenses in supply chain or resource utilization).

Demonstration of the above through independent, peer-reviewed publication(s) is beneficial, but not required.*
