Momentum is building across hundreds of community hospitals to embrace the OpenMarkets ExchangeTM as a new and better way to collaborate on equipment procurement.  Let’s take a look at some of the community hospitals who have recently begun using The ExchangeTM:

  • Graham Regional Medical Center in Graham, TX. Located more than 2 hours from Dallas, 29-bed Graham Regional is the largest employer in the county. Billie Jones, the Materials Manager, after finishing a transaction for patient scales, bluntly states “You got me exactly what I needed. Makes me so happy, I’m so excited. You made me look like a hero! This is better than getting on the internet and doing the research.” Hat tip to you here Billie, this is a job well done. The Exchange simply makes this easy.

  • Granville Health System in Oxford, NC. Another small independent hospital, Granville’s Clinical Value Analysis Director Zeb Barnette recently used The ExchangeTM to buy an OR hand table from Bryton. “Great product!”

  • Johnson Regional Medical Center in Clarksville, AR. Located in the heart of the Ozarks, JRMC is another community hospital located ~2 hours from a major airport (Little Rock, in this case). Temple Bosold, the Director of Purchasing, has gotten the attention of the C-Suite with her innovative work: “Joe (the CFO) and Mike (CEO) both love OpenMarkets. I got my review recently and they were both impressed at how we brought you on and are saving money with OpenMarkets.”

  • Madison Memorial Hospital in Rexburg, ID. Jim Moss at Madison Memorial is a one-man shop when it comes to equipment sourcing strategy and execution. Demographics present a challenging revenue situation for this 69-bed hospital, and leadership has tasked Jim with not only maximizing spend but also meeting tough multi-bid requirements. The ExchangeTM is expanding Jim’s bandwidth, and he’s worked with several new suppliers as a result.

For these hospitals, The ExchangeTM is a new and better way to bring suppliers to their community hospitals. For a company like Ziehm Imaging, makers of high-quality C-Arms at an advantageous price point, directing the sales team to community hospitals is more expensive than it used to be. The ExchangeTM offers the opportunity for them to collaborate with hospitals in a way that works better for both parties.

Providers can use the ExchangeTM at no cost. Start today here.
