a Transformational Sourcing Data Technology Company

GPO HEALTH has built a near-real-time* (NRT) sourcing Data Transparency Platform focused on reducing IT services healthcare costs.  We collect billions of historical and current sourcing data points from clients, partners and the industry, and through our advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, we advance new and significant unseen insights into the finance, supply chain and procurement processes.

GPO HEALTH’s Mission

Our mission is to enable our clients to release savings and increase quality to improve and save lives.

Why Healthcare IT?

The Healthcare IT services sector is a multi-billion-dollar market where excessive complexity has been built into the process of defining and delivering services. This is the first NRT platform that breaks down the complexity.  Where traditional procurement analysis and reviews take weeks, even months, to negotiate and deliver, and often produce outdated and incomplete results, GPO HEALTH has created the Single Source of Truth across:

  • Accounts Payable
  • IT Procurement
  • Contract Management

Our AI-ML algorithms provide immediate NRT transparency of this data to enable you to lower your IT services costs, while improving quality and increasing efficiency through continuous competitive benchmarking, access to alternative vendors and new procurement optimization insights.

How we do it

Working alongside your Finance, Supply Chain or Procurement organization, or your outside procurement specialist company, we deliver the complete solution with our Sourcing Partners.

Our value creation

GPO HEALTH provides consistent, immediate and continuous NRT actionable insights at your fingertips, accelerating time to savings and value; for our clients, partners and Sourcing Partners, we enable savings of hundreds of millions of dollars.
