University of Missouri System On Pace to Save Nearly $15 Million in Exclusive Distribution Agreement with Medline

NORTHFIELD, Ill., Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent industry report suggests hospitals are leaving roughly $24 billion in untapped supply chain savings on the table each year. For academic healthcare organizations that combine all supply purchasing and contracting for academic institutions and health systems like the University of Missouri (UM) System that serves MU Health Care, identifying deep savings can't be done alone.

In less than a year after UM System Supply Chain selected Medline as its strategic business partner, it is now on pace to save a projected $14.7 million over the course of the seven-year relationship.

"Partnering with one prime vendor across our entire supply chain, particularly where our academic campuses and MU Health Care intersect, helps our entire system collaborate as a single unit," says Tony Hall, assistant vice president and chief procurement officer, UM System Supply Chain. "Medline has identified gaps and opportunities for growth that will help us today and into the future."  

Preliminary savings are attributed to improved price accuracy and fill rates, utilizing on-site analysts and sales specialists, and enhanced standardization. Additionally, being a manufacturer and distributor allows Medline to co-create with customers to develop unique solutions that make financial and clinical sense.

"The UM System is expanding beyond the traditional supplier-provider distribution relationship," says Marc Phillips, corporate sales vice president, Medline. "From customized solutions for branded kits in labor and delivery, to reimagining how the supply chain can be leveraged in new ways, forward-thinking organizations must evolve."
