Aurora, IL (PRWEB) July 23, 2015
Supermax Healthcare, Inc., is pleased to announce their new membership with aptitude LLC, for its Aurelia® family of non-sterile exam gloves. This agreement is intended to reduce costs for more than 1000 hospital users, while speeding up contracting in the healthcare supply chain. The aptitude platform allows product suppliers and healthcare facilities to directly collaborate to deliver superior service, product quality and the efficiencies of customized agreements.
“From our first conversations with aptitude, we recognized their place in accelerating the healthcare supply chain and facilitating relationships between hospitals and suppliers,” said Greg Meagher, Vice President for Supermax. “The aggregation groups, IDN and single hospital entities using aptitude understand the multiple cost components of the supplies they use, and embrace the total delivered cost model of supply relationships.”
“Supermax is uniquely positioned to establish the sophisticated relationships healthcare facilities require to meet their patient care and economic goals,” said Kat Logan, RN, Director for Supermax. “The aptitude customers are seeking the solutions we have to offer. These solutions are not available in traditional standardized contracts – flexibility, transparency and communication.”
Throughout July and August, Supermax will be sponsoring a series of educational webinars for aptitude customers – to address both clinical and economic components of the exam glove market. In addition, Supermax is funding an independent research study to identify and quantify the shortcomings of traditional contracted agreements versus collaborative supply relationships.
