Strategic Radiology has added the GroupSource group purchasing organization as a Preferred Vendor, extending savings opportunities for members on everything from medical imaging technology to office supplies.
“In contracting with GroupSource, we are aligning with a resource specifically developed to deliver savings and support to independent physician practitioners,” said Randal Roat, chief operating officer, Strategic Radiology. “We think all of our members can benefit, particularly the groups with ownership interests in outpatient diagnostic imaging centers.”
GroupSource is a national physician-focused GPO that partners with Premier to deliver superior, sustainable procurement value to members by leveraging its more than $60 billion purchasing power across 165,000 sites. The GPO encompasses more than 2,000 contracts with national suppliers well-known and respected by the outpatient imaging center community. Participants can save significantly on their direct spend in product categories that include radiopharmaceuticals, medical imaging technology, and credit card services.
