Yankee Alliance Partners with PartsSource for Medical Parts Procurement

August 27, 2018

CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 27, 2018--PartsSource, the first and only cloud-based platform that orders, tracks and standardizes the procurement of quality medical replacement parts, has been selected as a partner by Yankee Alliance, a healthcare organization that reduces member supply and operating expenses through aggregation of data, purchasing, ideas and knowledge. PartsSource’s curated marketplace consolidates 4 million products into a single digital platform to reduce variance, support evidence-based purchasing decisions and simplify an often-fragmented process, which aligns with Yankee Alliance’s strategies for cost reduction, contracting, analytics, benchmarking and value management in the healthcare supply chain.

PartsSource will provide Yankee Alliance members a simplified parts procurement process, visibility into spend and quality, and standardization in the challenging area of purchased services – an area that can represent up to one-third of a health system’s total expenditures. Yankee Alliance members also will benefit from special pricing when signing new agreements with PartsSource.

“Every day we help hospital systems deliver better margins through lower supply costs, more effective use of team members and by digitizing cumbersome procurement processes of mission-critical goods and services,” said Phil Settimi, M.D., President and CEO of PartsSource. “Yankee Alliance members can now leverage a proven solution in use by 15,000 clinical sites across the country who partner with PartsSource to access 4 million products through more than 6,000 suppliers to improve availability of clinical assets and bottom line results.”
