IPC Group Purchasing

Reduce Supply Chain Expenses with IPC Group Purchasing

Supplies are essential to every healthcare organization, but the costs can add up quickly. That's where purchasing power comes in.

IPC Group Purchasing (IPC) can drive savings for acute and non-acute healthcare organizations by:

  • Combining the benefits of national GPO pricing with the advantages and flexibility of regional contracting; and
  • Offering opportunities to share best practices through peer networking.

Our purchasing power comes from collaboration. We bring down the costs of supplies by bringing together the Illinois Health and Hospital Association (IHA) and Premier Inc., with hospitals, health systems and non-acute providers.

IPC's successful volume aggregation model is key to achieving the best value for all members.

  • Member supply chain executives lead IPC's contract decision making process.
  • We offer members customized member support to maximize contract savings.

We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our program's competitive advantage. IPC is offered through IHA Business Resources, an Illinois Health and Hospital Association company.
