EXCELerating Excellence In All We Do

Group Purchasing Two Years Later:
Two years ago, damaging articles about GPO’s began appearing in The New York Times, suggesting that GPO’s unfairly locked out small manufacturers from the market. Shortly thereafter, hearings commenced before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights. Since then, The General Accounting Office has studied GPO practices, and the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission have both held hearings about the matter. In the wake of all this, how different is group purchasing today, what does that difference mean to your company? Find out from those who know. We’ve invited a Capital Hill staffer to tell us what’s going on in Washington. William McIlhargey will be hosting a panel discussion with presentations from, Scott Farrar, Vice President Contracting at HealthTrust Purchasing Group in Nashville, TN, John Strong, President and CEO of Consorta in Rolling Meadows, Il and Les Popiolek, Vice President of Broadlane in Dallas, TX..
