With the MAGNET GROUP MRM Solution, vendors no longer have to worry about missing out on potential sales opportunities.

Healthcare Data Solutions (HDS), a leading provider of healthcare databases, compliance and business intelligence services, today announced a strategic partnership with MAGNET GROUP, Mid-Atlantic Group Network of Shared Services Cooperative, one of the largest Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) specializing in capital equipment.

Healthcare Data Solutions and MAGNET GROUP have joined forces to provide healthcare vendors with the MAGNET GROUP Master Roster Management (MRM) Solution, a robust program that enables MAGNET GROUP suppliers to maintain compliance of their GPO agreement, decrease costs associated with managing the contract, and expand sales into provider facilities.

“The Healthcare Data Solutions and MAGNET GROUP partnership is a breakthrough in supply chain management,” says Tim Slevin, CEO at Healthcare Data Solutions. “Most Corporate Sales teams are working with disparate systems or mass spreadsheets to track membership, report sales and understand selling targets.

“By combining MAGNET GROUP’s MRM solution with Healthcare Data Solutions’ healthcare organization database, we have created a cost-effective, turnkey solution that not only streamlines master roster management tasks and reporting obligations for suppliers, but also provides a comprehensive view of potential sales targets and key decision makers all in one tool,” Slevin continues.

“With the MAGNET GROUP MRM Solution, vendors no longer have to worry about missing out on potential sales opportunities,” said MAGNET GROUP President and Chairman, Christopher C. Moore. “Now that they’ll be able to see what facilities belong to the MAGNET GROUP, including its sub-member GPOs, vendors can use that information to promote their brand and pricing discounts and, ultimately, generate new sales.”

The MAGNET GROUP Master Roster Management (MRM) Solution is available to MAGNET GROUP vendors at a reduced cost. For more information, visit
