Purchased Services 

Strategically Drive Sustainable Savings Through Purchased Services

Health care purchased services include any clinical or operational service that is outsourced.

We combine an insight-driven approach with subject-matter expertise, industry best practices and national market intelligence to help you make smarter Purchased Services decisions. Purchased Services represents 15 to 20 percent of a health system’s total expenses–rivaling total supply spend.

With national benchmarks, data and analytics combined with expertise we help ensure savings beyond a local or regional level.
