Our contracting process is guided by the industry’s most comprehensive Code of Conduct, which supports healthy competition while encouraging new and innovative products to enter the market. Premier’s sourcing process ensures that factors beyond price are given serious and appropriate consideration. Clinical efficacy and improved patient care are especially important to us and our members.

Who decides which suppliers get a contract with Premier?

Premier members, through service line-specific sourcing committees, determine which companies and products are awarded group purchasing contracts. The selection criteria varies by category and is designed by members with subject matter expertise on the product category being reviewed.

What types of facilities belong to the Premier GPO?

Premier is an alliance of approximately 3,900 U.S. hospitals and health systems. Our acute care members span the nation, stretching from Alaska to the Florida Keys. Our members include a wide array of nonprofit hospitals and health systems, including many faith-based and academic institutions, committed to meeting the healthcare needs of their communities, yet challenged by competing priorities and pressures. Our members are dedicated to delivering quality healthcare services while safely lowering costs.

We also serve approximately 150,000 other providers and organizations. Across the continuum of care, we meet the specific needs of non-acute classes of trade, including senior living, surgery centers, physician practices, imaging centers, home care, ambulatory care, clinical labs and more. We even extend our savings to non-healthcare classes of trade, including education, recreation and hospitality, through the Premier REACHTM program.

Should my company adopt a code of conduct?

Premier is a founding member of the Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative (HGPII), a voluntary association dedicated to ethical conduct and business practices, and to serving the confidence of the public and government officials. The initiative is based on six core purposes, including creation of, and adherence to, a written code of business conduct that establishes high ethical values, quality healthcare, cost-effectiveness, an open and competitive purchasing process, sound business practices and public accountability. HGPII supports the adoption of, and adherence to, a strong code of conduct by suppliers and encourages its members to consider whether suppliers have adopted the AdvaMed code of conduct or a similar code.

What do I do if I have concerns, grievances or complaints relating to the contracting award process, contract award decisions or any other concerns?

Premier’s vendor grievance process ensures a vendor’s ability to access Premier’s contracting staff and leadership to address concerns, grievances or complaints relating to the contracting award process, contract award decisions or any other concerns.
