  • Group Purchasing Opportunities

    We are pleased to introduce a program for all physicians as a benefit of your affiliation with Kindred Healthcare. Through our relationship with MedAssets, our group procurement company for healthcare products, you can access a comprehensive catalog of practice supplies, equipment and services at discounts that only large healthcare providers typically can access. There is no cost to you and you can expect to save from 5 percent to 10 percent on the supplies that drive 10 to 20 percent of your practice costs.

    MedAssets leverages the buying power of its nationwide client base – totaling over $48 billion in annual purchases. The MedAssets Physician Services portfolio covers most of the typical practice’s supply and equipment needs. Some of the products and services available to you today through this program are:

    • Medical and surgical supplies at hospital prices
    • Office supplies and copiers
    • Custom forms
    • Computers and cell phones
    • Radiology supplies
    • Laboratory supplies
    • Pharmaceuticals that are typically dispensed in physician offices
    • Major and minor medical equipment and office furniture

    As your partner, MedAssets offers you several other benefits. In addition to access to the supplies and equipment you need, this program is available to you at no cost or obligation. A personal representative is dedicated to assist with the enrollment process and to make sure you are satisfied with the results of your MedAssets relationship. Finally, since many of you use one of our contracted distributors (McKesson, PSS, Henry Schein, or Cardinal), the act of enrollment is to simply switch to MedAssets contracts with your current distributor.

    Again, there is no cost for this program and it does not commit you to purchase any set amount through the program or prevent you from negotiating any other purchasing arrangement. It is simply a value-added service available to you as a result of your affiliation with Kindred Healthcare.

    In order to learn more about this cost saving opportunity through MedAssets Physician Services, please contact MedAssets directly at 888-578-2647or via email at altservices@medassets.com.
