Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, today announced a partnership as the preferred group purchasing organization (GPO) of the North East Regional Urgent Care Association (NERUCA).
NERUCA was formed in 2013 to represent urgent care medicine in the northeast and now represents 143 member organizations.
“Urgent Care trends and issues tend to be regional, and we formed this organization several years ago with that in mind,” said Dr. John Kulin, NERUCA board president. "Today NERUCA has grown into a thriving organization able to bring national urgent care expertise to the north east and we feel this partnership with Intalere helps us to reach an even deeper level of benefit to our members in terms of cost reduction and enhanced quality of care.”
The partnership will give NERUCA’s members access to Intalere’s provider-driven customized solutions that focus on supply chain best practices, enhanced business strategies and predictable Positive clinical outcomes. NERUCA members who join Intalere will also have access to Northeast Alliance tiers and pricing, for even greater cost reduction opportunities.
“NERUCA has established themselves as a valuable asset in representing the interests of their members over the past several years and we look forward to collaborating with them to help ensure the growth and sustainability of their member base,” said Barton Schmitz, vice president, non-acute care, Intalere.
