Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO) PolicyUpdated a year ago

MFI Medical is an authorized distributor of national Group Purchasing Organizations and their respective affiliates and sponsors.

"What is a GPO?": A Group Purchasing Organization, referred to as a "GPO," is an entity that helps health care providers realize savings and efficiencies by aggregating the purchasing volume of their members and using that leverage to negotiate discounts with manufacturers, distributors, and other vendors.

MFI has developed custom programs with our GPO partners to assist health care practitioners in improving operational efficiencies and providing products and services at reduced costs that help with revenue generation, resulting in increased practice profitability. Our comprehensive programs offer access to GPO supplier contracts that provide cost savings and expanded services.

MFI Medical has partnered with IMCO to provide lower pricing on many brands and is registered with Vizient, Intalare, and Premier GPOs (more information regarding each group below).
