BMG to Tap into the Power of Provista and Vizient Contracts
On Monday January 24, all Blackmaple Group Customers will begin to transition to the Provista contracts portfolio through the BMG / Medline program. As many of you may know, our previous GPO partner — Intalere — was purchased by Vizient in Q2 of 2021. Provista is wholly owned by Vizient and acts as the non-acute arm in the healthcare market. With the previous Intalere contracts set to expire over the first half of 2022, we’re making this move to ensure that you can continue to maximize cost savings and gain better access into industry-leading contract portfolio going into 2022.
What This Means to You
For most BMG members, the change will be seamless and largely automatic. The impact on pricing will be minimal: for the most part, pricing will stay the same or in some cases decrease somewhat. Furthermore, a few customers will be asked to confirm their locations so that we can make sure that everything is connected properly (if you’re one of those customers, you’ll either get a message directly from BMG or your Medline rep).
