Our Services

IPC Group Purchasing reduces healthcare supply chain expenses through collaboration among the IHA, hospital and health care systems, and Premier, Inc. Our program combines the benefits of national GPO purchasing power with the advantages and flexibility of regional contracting and the opportunity to share best practices through peer networking.

IPC's successful volume aggregation model is key to achieving best value for all members. We engage member supply chain executives to lead the contract decision making process. Each member receives customized support to maximize contract savings and to provide additional resources and assistance to their supply chain staff.

IPC is offered through IHA Business Resources, an Illinois Health and Hospital Association company.
