IBSA Awarded New Health-Care Contract
Headquartered in Indianapolis, International Business Solutions Alliance (IBSA) was selected by Premier Inc.—one of the largest health-care alliances in the United States—as a contracted supplier of document management solutions. San Diego-based Premier serves 1,700 hospitals and approximately 45,000 other health-care sites, and is dedicated to improving patient outcomes while safely reducing the cost of care.
Under the multi-year agreement which begins in May, IBSA’s affiliate members will provide a broad product offering to Premier’s hospitals and other health-care sites. After a thorough review process, Premier awarded the contract based on IBSA’s extensive capabilities and experience in servicing the health-care industry, including its contracts with Novation and First Choice Cooperative.
“We take great pride in our experience in the health-care industry. IBSA is an organization that has been growing and adapting substantially, and in a rapidly changing environment such as health-care, that is crucial to success,” said Rodney White, vice president of national account sales for IBSA.
Among other considerations, Premier selected IBSA based on its ability to provide cost-saving programs, as well as develop a comprehensive, customized support structure to monitor and measure every aspect of the program. In addition, all IBSA affiliate representatives will be required to complete a comprehensive health-care certification before they are able to work with Premier members.
Said Mark McKinney, IBSA’s president and CEO, “These types of contracts are precisely why IBSA has been growing so steadily. As a national alliance, we can offer organizations like Premier sbstantial benefits and cost-savings. And, our affiliates and suppliers gain access to accounts they may not have been able to work on as individual entities. It’s a win-win-win situation.”
