FREMONT, CA: QHR Health, a chief healthcare shared services business for independent hospitals and health systems countrywide, announced the realignment of its supply chain shared service, now named PLUS, a QHR health company.

The move regulates QHR Health’s supply chain service, PLUS with its customer-centric delivery paradigm to drive quantifiable value to customers and deliver customized plans that meet hospital and service providers’ diverse supply chain requirements. PLUS provides clients several significant advantages, including:

• The capability to leverage more than $1.1 billion of purchasing power via a network of independent community-based hospitals and an influential one-price GPO partner, HealthTrust.

• Access to extended supply chain bench strength through a shared-service method that comprises unparalleled industry expertise and a desire for client success.

• Insights from an organization that has effectively served the independent community healthcare market for over 40 years with a proven track record of impacting cost savings and solidifying healthcare supply chain performance.

“We believe the status quo is no longer acceptable when developing healthcare supply chain strategies,” said Dwayne Gunter, President, QHR Health. “This is particularly true when serving independent healthcare organizations tasked with meeting the needs of communities impacted by vast geographic, socio-economic and demographic challenges. As a result, we designed PLUS to be more than a purchasing partner. The PLUS approach considers that each hospital has unique challenges requiring tailored solutions to meet their specific needs driving savings, improving the bottom line, and creating a better experience for hospital administrative and care teams.”

Jeff Kimmell, Senior Vice President, QHR, and who leads PLUS, explained, “the firm is focused on exceeding client expectations through its Performance Impact Team design. Through PLUS each client has designated relationship managers centered on key client needs including strategic sourcing, pharmacy optimization, materials management, technology and process improvement, analytics, and leveraging purchasing power through its relationship with HealthTrust, the industrys leading one-price GPO.”
