The Ohio Health Care Association and Ohio Centers for Assisted Living are proud to introduce members to our partnership with Innovatix, the largest alternate care group purchasing organization in the country. With more than 12-years experience and $23 billion in purchasing power, Innovatix delivers savings, rebates, and other marketplace efficiencies in pharmaceuticals, medical and surgical supplies, food service, equipment, fractionated blood products, laboratory services and office supplies.
The Innovatix partnership was created for Association members to access the highest quality, most comprehensive portfolio of contracts in the market, at the best possible prices. The Innovatix GPO program is somewhat different than many other GPOs in that their contracts are end-user manufacturer agreements and you can access those agreements through nearly any authorized distributor of your choice. What that means to you is simply no hidden costs and the flexibility to negotiate distributor services and margins that meet your business needs.
There are more than 1200 manufacturer contracts that exist within the Innovatix portfolio. Some of the more popular ones include contracts with 3M, Arjo, Briggs, Cintas, ConvaTec, EcoLabs, First Quality, Fed-Ex, Georgia Pacific, Hill-Rom, Joerns, Johnson & Johnson, KCI, Kimberly Clark, Nestle, Office Depot/Office Max, Ross, Smith & Nephew, Trane, Tyco Healthcare, and W.W. Grainger. Food, as all long-term care providers know, is clearly one of our highest expenditure items. With Innovatix, members can participate in the same food-purchasing program as the largest healthcare and hospital systems in the country. Through an exclusive relationship with US Foodservice nationwide, members can be part of over $1.25 billion in purchasing volume, which yields immediate savings of 12% to 15% or even more.
Our partnership with Innovatix was also created to bring about regional enhancements to existing contracts in the Innovatix portfolio as well as create new contracts just for OHCA/OCAL members. We are happy to announce the following enhancements:
The other great thing about Innovatix is the enrollment process. It is simple and it is free! Aren’t you curious to see how Innovatix and OHCA/OCAL can help you save thousands of dollars off your bottom line?
