Are you sure that you are getting the best price when you order specialty surgical instruments if you rely only on your GPO? A ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, Senator Charles E. Grassley, stated:
"Whether Group Purchasing Organizations are able to help save money on medical supply costs or not impacts federal health care spending... There's no data with which to independently verify the effect, one way or another, and that's a shortcoming in the current system."
There is no empirical data available to support claims of savings by Group Purchasing Organizations. Read the Government Accountability Office's report on GPOs: http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d10738.pdf
With GPOs, many specialty surgical instruments are not inlcuded in the contract pricing. If you order specialty surgical instruments, compare costs before you order to be certain you are getting the best price. Contact Millennium Surgical for a quick quote before you order.
