ASC supply chain tip of the day: Comparison shop GPOs

Ann Geier, CNO of Alpharetta, Ga.-based Surgical Information Systems shared this tip on improving inventory management on the company's blog:

"GPOs can help ASCs achieve purchasing savings and efficiencies because they aggregate purchasing volume and then use this leverage to negotiate pricing discounts. But not all GPOs are the same. Differences can include pricing (some have no annual fees), manufacturers on contract and services offered. Even if you have a good relationship with your GPO, it's always worth examining what other GPOs may offer."
