St. Louis, Mo. and Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (PRWEB) April 02, 2015
Blackmaple Group, LLC (BMG), has recently selected Amerinet as its Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) for its portfolio of over 2,500 providers nationwide. BMG selected Amerinet after an extensive process to review national GPOs capable of backstopping the company’s rapid growth in its purchasing business and meeting its unique value proposition.
“We are very pleased with our new relationship with Amerinet, and look forward to tapping into their extensive capabilities, said Marc A. Cooper, president and COO, Blackmaple Group. “Our growth in this segment has been extraordinary, at times reaching 10% or more per week. With this in mind, the right national GPO relationship – with access to great contracts, a deep knowledge of the independent physician group model, and a series of data and management tools to help members maximize savings – was becoming increasingly critical. Amerinet’s technology and team is top-notch, and we’re eager to bring their value to our client base.”
Amerinet collaborates with more than 80,000 acute and non-acute care providers nationwide to create and deliver unique healthcare solutions. From clinical and operational efficiency improvements to supply chain excellence and data analytics, Amerinet partners with members to overcome every challenge by engineering a precisely tailored solution to their unique situations.
“A key focus for Amerinet has long been on using business expertise to help independent physician groups and others to remain independent in the face of a massively changing healthcare environment,” said Jeff Bell, chief sales officer, Amerinet. “The Blackmaple Group’s ability to work with these clients – calling on years of C-suite consulting expertise – has led to massive growth and a great reputation. We’re pleased to be a critical part of their offering, and looking forward to winning together.”
“As the supply chain grows in importance and reimbursement reforms make cost reduction ever-more crucial for healthcare facilities, we are constantly seeking like-minded partners with whom to collaborate, leveraging the strengths of each organization to align strategies and offer comprehensive resources to make healthcare providers even more efficient and cost-effective,” said Todd Ebert, president and CEO, Amerinet.
As part of the agreement, Amerinet’s over 150 field representatives will work with BMG to drive analysis and data for BMG purchasing clients. The process – which includes regular review and retiering of contracts – is designed to maximize savings potential while at the same time providing world-class data and management tools.
Jeff Gold, chairman and CEO of BMG, added “for years, we’ve had the vision of building a purchasing service that brings true C-suite business rigor to the expenses side of the ledger. With Amerinet now on-board to support our membership, we’re truly making this a reality. I’m really looking forward to building this business with them, and introducing them to BMG clients and collaborators.”
As a leading national healthcare solutions organization, Amerinet collaborates with acute and non-acute care providers to create and deliver unique solutions through performance improvement resources, guidance and ongoing support. With better product standardization and utilization, new financial tools beyond contracting and alliances that help lower costs, raise revenue and champion quality, Amerinet enriches healthcare delivery for its members and the communities they serve.
