Amerinet, Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization has announced a sole-source, exclusive agreement with MedPricer, the industry leader in healthcare e-Sourcing, to provide cloud-based contract negotiation and bidding process solutions to its members.
“MedPricer’s fully-managed online marketplace enables buyers to quickly implement a strategic e-sourcing program that delivers savings without the need to buy expensive software or worry about implementation schedules,” said Ken Rosemann, vice president, laboratory, diagnostic imaging and medical surgical contracting for Amerinet. “From basic commodities to the most complex procurements, their e-sourcing tool enables buyers to negotiate contracts in hours rather than weeks or months.”
With over $2 billion in total contracts awarded that average 21 percent savings across all categories, MedPricer has extensive experience assisting buyers in sourcing a wide range of products and services including:
- Purchased services
- Construction projects
- Capital equipment
“MedPricer’s cloud-based user-friendly e-sourcing tool and dedicated buyer support team help healthcare providers negotiate best-in-class pricing and terms,” said Rob Paulsson, MedPricer CEO. “Our management team assists with creating e-RFPs, conducting supplier training, acting as the designated point of contact and providing pre- and post-bid analysis. This frees facility contract managers from the burdensome tasks of running RFPs and allows them to be more productive.”
Among the competitive advantages offered by MedPricer:
- A vendor funded administrative fee model that means zero direct cost to clients.
- Full negotiation support with multiple rounds of proposals (price and non-price areas) designed to produce the best possible overall outcomes for all stakeholders.
