What We Do
Membership in AdvantageTrust provides non-acute care providers and nonprofits with access to the same pricing as the largest hospitals and health systems by leveraging $51.9+ billion of purchasing power.Become A Member
AdvantageTrust is a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO).
A GPO is a cooperative that aggregates the purchasing volume of its members to negotiate pricing on products and services. Members (hospitals, physician offices, surgery centers, long-term care facilities, etc.) make their purchases directly from the contracted supplier but the pricing, protections, payment and freight terms, and other conditions are negotiated between the GPO and supplier. The GPO manages the contracts and does all the behind the scenes work.
Our members receive unprecedented savings by tapping into the purchasing power of the largest committed model GPO. Advantages of membership include:
- No-cost to join
- No risk to join
- Access to the broadest contract portfolio
- Superior contract terms and conditions
- Customer service and support designed specifically for non-hospital providers
How We are Different
As a division of HCA Healthcare, a leading healthcare system, our goals align with yours, namely, providing effective, evidenced-based, innovative care while managing supply chain expense.
We are the only truly committed GPO model in healthcare. The alignment of thousands of members, each using our contracts, underlies the scale that suppliers reward with industry-best pricing.
Simple, Easy to Use Agreements
Our contracts are simple to use—one price for all and very few pricing tiers. If there happen to be tiers, they are market-share based, not volume based.
Supplies, Services and Equipment
We provide members with access to a broad portfolio of supplies, equipment and service categories.
- Office supplies/copiers
- Express mail/shipping
- Rental cars/travel
- IT hardware and supplies
- Capital equipment
- Patient room furniture
- Environmental services
- Mail solutions
- Human Resource services
- Distribution services
- Business products
- IV supplies
- Laboratory equipment and supplies
Through our partnership with AdvantageTrust, National Assembly’s 8,000+ nonprofit members have saved an estimated $180+ million that has been redirected to the mission-related programs that build well-being in their communities. We continually find that the [AdvantageTrust] negotiated pricing is the most competitive. To top it off, the team at AdvantageTrust is always a pleasure to work with and works with us when new questions or challenges arise.
