Every day, medical supply distributors in the Physician, Clinic, Surgery Center, and Long Term Care markets, are facing a growing presence of National Accounts and Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) in their classes of trade. With the increasingly common practice of Hospitals and IDNs partnering with physician practices and extended care facilities, It is clear that the independent medical supply distributor must be able to service larger and larger entities. With GPOs and large national distributors now targeting those non-acute facilities for membership, there are fewer and fewer areas of trade that are not affected by this trend.
IMCO has agreements in place with Vizient, MedAssets, Novation/Provista, Intalere and Dignity Health. These agreements allow our members to join all of these GPO programs under the IMCO umbrella.
