Northbrook, IL, January 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Over the last three months, 20 provider organizations, comprised of 43 hospitals, including Wellspan Health, Inova Health System, Methodist Health System-Dallas, Christiana Care Health System, University Health System, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Truman Medical Centers have joined the OpenMarkets network to drive savings on capital equipment purchases.
OpenMarkets clients save thousands of dollars each day on capital purchases. “Although we have only been using OpenMarkets for a short time, they have quickly added value to our capital equipment purchasing process,” says John Gallagher, Manager of Strategic Sourcing at WakeMed Health. “Our second transaction produced savings of over $17,000—which is certainly a win in an increasingly strained budget environment.”
In a recent transaction with a Florida health system, the OpenMarkets price-paid database identified a savings opportunity within a Linear Accelerator quote. OpenMarkets negotiated locally, leveraging their data, and delivered a revised quote detailing $297,034 in savings.
“I am excited by our continued growth,” says Trevor Wood, Vice President of Sales for OpenMarkets. “Network expansion is a key ingredient in turbo-charging the value we provide. I am looking forward to what we will accomplish together."
