PLUS™, A QHR Health Company, Client Success Story: Coffeyville Regional Medical Center

Challenge

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center, a nonprofit hospital in southeast Kansas licensed for 47 beds, has net patient revenue of $36 million and a total spend of $3.7 million on medical and surgical supply. Once a QHR Health client, Coffeyville decided to move their business to another group purchasing organization (GPO). The hospital quickly discovered their supply expenses were increasing.

QHR Health Solutions

Coffeyville turned to PLUS™, QHR Health’s supply chain subsidiary that strengthens independent hospital performance with more than $1.1 billion in purchasing power, to assess whether a switch would lower expenses. As a part of the due diligence process, PLUS™ conducted a pricing analysis on more than 5,000 items.

Results

The pricing analysis PLUS™ performed for Coffeyville revealed the hospital could save nearly nine percent. As shown in the savings demonstration for the custom selection of product, some of spend illustrated savings of more than 20 percent. Within 10 months of converting to a competitor, Coffeyville returned to PLUS™.
