Clinical Services

       Clinical sourcing experts - nurses and doctors

 

Medbuy contracts include supplies that are used in our country’s operating room, ambulatory care, medical/surgical, critical care, complex continuing care and pediatric units. We have established a team to ensure that every item we put on contract meets the high standards our Members and their patients expect.

Our in-house team, which is quite unique for a GPO, includes a physician and four Registered Nurses, who understand the hospital environment, frontline care delivery and how products are used at bedside. They take the lead in risk rating every product in every RFP so the right sourcing strategy and criteria can be deployed. Critically, they also understand our Member clinical leaders and specialists – and how to engage this specific expertise in the sourcing process and build connections within the hospital.
