MedTech Group Purchasing Organization (GPO)
SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS FOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS – NO COST TO JOIN!
The MedTech For Solutions Group Purchasing Organization works with medical practices in all specialties and of all sizes to protect your assets and control your costs. MedTech currently serves over 200 IVF practices, representing well over half of all ART cycles nationally. MedTech’s GPO. offers savings on all your practice and office needs from medical supplies and pharmaceuticals to office and medical equipment. ART/IVF practices can also receive discounts on specialized medical and laboratory equipment.
Significant savings – In conjunction with Provista, a division of Vizient, Inc., a preeminent provider of medical supplies and equipment, our program produces significant savings which typically range from 10–50%.
Professional services discounts on MedTech Consulting Services. MedTech GPO members are eligible for a 10% discount on services provided through MedTech Laboratory Solutions, MedTech Practice Development, or MedTech Recruitment.
Membership in the GPO will be business as usual – no need to change your current supplier relationships. If, like most practices, you use one of the major medical supply companies, you do not have to change your current supplier or ordering procedures to participate. On your end nothing changes except a reduction in your costs and an increase in your savings.
Leading service providers – MedTech’s GPO has been in operation for over 5 years and has contracted with top industry providers including, but not limited to, Airgas®, Federal Express, General Electric (G.E.)®, Herman Miller®, Kimball®, LabCorp®, Nikon®, Olympus®, Staples®, Office Depot®, Steelcase® and many more. MedTech also has specialized contracts with leading ART equipment vendors including Hamilton Thorne, NexGen, Vitrolife, Fischer Scientific, and Cooper-Surgical.
Concierge service – MedTech has a dedicated team of service professionals available to review your practice’s equipment, supplies and spending and identify savings opportunities.
Vendor Contracts – The GPO is consistently adding new vendors, providing members savings in more categories.
Example savings areas include:
“I AM A SKEPTIC BY NATURE. WHEN I FIRST JOINED THE MEDTECH FOR SOLUTIONS GROUP PURCHASING ORGANIZATION,
I didn’t think it would make much of a difference, but I was willing to give it a try. I am glad I did. MedTech provided me with expert technical assistance in the IVF lab when I needed it most. I also save money on our laboratory, practice and office supplies with the GPO and their concierge service is unbelievable. Email and phone calls are always returned promptly. If only the health insurance companies were this customer service oriented.
I highly recommend the MedTech Group Purchasing Organization to other physicians, clinics and health care organizations.”

“WHENEVER WE ARE LOOKING AT DOING BUSINESS WITH A NEW VENDOR,
the first thing out of our mouths is ‘we are a MedTech GPO member affiliated with Broadlane.’ We know that this will generate pricing that we have found to be unmatched by other GPO’s and as well as unmatched by our own one-on-one negotiating.
We have found MedTech to always be helpful when we’ve called upon its folks to assist in navigating through any challenges, or to look into other opportunities that may be out there. In this day of pressures from managed care on the revenue side as well as pressures from the current economic environment, MedTech proves to be a useful resource in relieving pressure on the expense side.”
