It’s awards season – and we couldn’t be prouder that TRIOSE is in the winner’s circle with recognition from our GPO partners. Our GPO relationships in themselves are a prized piece of our business, and these awards are a testament to the caliber of our collaborative work that helps hospitals and health networks manage the supply chain more efficiently and cost-effectively.
As we graciously accept these awards, our sincere thanks go out to our outstanding partners and to our fantastic TRIOSE team that works so hard every day to bring our mission to life and deliver healing.
Novation’s Business & Technology Supplier of the Year
Last month, we were privileged to attend Novation’s Supplier Summit in Las Vegas. This is one of the industry’s leading events where suppliers come together to discuss the challenges of the evolving healthcare landscape and how we can collectively aid hospitals and healthcare systems in managing these issues. This year more than 1,500 healthcare suppliers representing over 460 companies were in attendance.
Beyond facilitating these important conversations, Novation also recognized their top suppliers for “excellence in providing value and benefits” to members of VHA, UHC, Children’s Hospital Association and Provista in 2014. Amid stiff competition, TRIOSE was proudly named Business & Technology Supplier of the Year!
In addition to achieving this honor through diligence in delivering unprecedented value to Novation’s membership, we demonstrated an impressive 67.5 percent growth in 2014. We also collaborated with Novation on a number of strategic programs such as NOVAPLUS, as well as new innovative offerings in courier management and contract enhancements that extend out through 2017.
“We recognize that all of our contracted suppliers work tirelessly to bring value to the members and affiliates we serve through their products and services. The companies recognized as winners truly represent the best-of-the best,” said Pete Allen, Novation’s group senior vice president, sourcing operations.
According to Novation, this award is bestowed upon a supplier or distributor that has shown significant growth year over year and is fully engaged and invested in day-to-day operations with Novation as well as its Alliance staff to ensure the success of their contracts. Specific criteria used to evaluate awardees includes sales growth; member usage; participation in Alliance events; overall engagement with Novation in operations and management of the contract; and support of Alliance members through a field-based sales team.
From the outset of our relationship in 2012, we have been working tirelessly to deliver smart logistics solutions and unparalleled service to Novation members. Our work speaks for itself as we have helped hospitals save hundreds of thousands of dollars and significantly improve supply chain operations, but to be recognized as the top supplier for the entire organization is meaningful on another level. Novation works with many reputable vendors which makes this award an even greater accomplishment.
