Dallas, TX (Vocus) May 6, 2008
Broadlane announced today that Dameron Hospital in Stockton, California has selected Broadlane to provide an array of supply chain services under an exclusive agreement. Financial terms were not announced.
Under the agreement, Broadlane will provide Dameron Hospital with access to its unparalleled national GPO portfolio for consumable supplies, capital equipment, pharmaceuticals and purchased services. Additionally, Dameron Hospital will utilize Broadlane’s OnRamp client portal to help manage its approximate $28 million in annual supply spend.
Already a clinical services client, Dameron Hospital will continue to utilize Broadlane’s Orthopedic Management Program to control orthopedic spend for total joints, spinal implants and allograft bone.
“We worked with Broadlane clinical consultants to implement the Orthopedics Management Program, which resulted in double-digit percentage reductions without sacrificing quality and physician choice,” said Nicholas Arismendi, chief operating officer, Dameron Hospital. “Broadlane’s Orthopedics Management Program offers a best-in-class solution from a clinical consulting perspective and includes ongoing monthly reporting to ensure our savings are sustainable, which is why we expanded our relationship with Broadlane. As a new group purchasing client, we eagerly anticipate similar results delivered to our entire supply chain.”
“Broadlane has enjoyed a successful partnership with Dameron Hospital as a clinical consulting client, and we’re looking forward to expanding our proven service delivery model across their entire supply chain,” said Julie Plaga, senior vice president, sales, Broadlane. “We’re thrilled to be working with them in a new capacity and are confident the custom solution we developed will drive the sustainable savings and operational improvements they are seeking.”
