Successful UniHA Tender Announcement from our French partner, Promedeo

Our French partner, Promedeo, recently announced that they won several four-year tenders with the Union des Hôpitaux pour les Achats (UniHA), a co-operative of French public hospital buyers, that works in close collaboration with suppliers.

 

Background on UniHA

The aim of the organization is to pool together healthcare purchasing, expertise and skills for enhanced healthcare supply chain management.

The combined power of healthcare organizations coming together to create a supply chain partnership can:

 

Providers are increasingly looking for ways to reduce procurement costs, and joining a co-operative purchasing group has been a successful model across the globe. The initiative is gaining popularity and this can only improve the strength and buying power of the individual healthcare organization members.

In 2023 the UniHA cooperative included 1,359 establishments and 123 regional hospital groups, known locally as Groupement Hospitalier de Territoire (GHTs), It has now become one of Europe’s leading healthcare buyers and is one of the leading national buyers across all industries.

UniHA is convinced that purchasing is one of the strategic levers that supports hospital efficiency and the delivery of high-quality care.

Medical supply procurement has the power to impact hospital margins when it’s done right.
