Explore how aggregation groups help healthcare providers drive down cost & improve delivery of care


Aggregation groups were created to help independent hospitals choose supplies and initiate processes to ensure members commit a high percentage of their purchasing to group contracts. As value-based care takes hold, aggregation groups have evolved to help members also address new challenges, including: clinical alignment, physician preference supply use, care delivery models, and the application of advanced analytics to drive better decisions. During the webinar, we discuss the evolution of health care aggregation groups, the different facets of aggregation group participation, and how aggregation groups add value. We explore the success drivers and challenges in health care aggregation and how partnering with the right aggregation group can help you achieve your organizational goals.
