settings and improve patient outcomes."

According to HealthCare Supply Chains Association, a group purchasing
organization (GPO) is an entity that helps healthcare providers-such as

efficiencies by aggregating purchasing volume and using that leverage to
negotiate discounts with manufacturers, distributors and other vendors.

contracts.
