About Gastrologix: Founded in 2016, Gastrologix is the only specialty-specific group purchasing organization in the country serving the needs of independent gastroenterologists. Working closely with a national network of leading GI physicians, their mission is to help independent gastroenterology practices increase efficiencies at the practice level, strengthening the doctor/patient bond. Gastrologix becomes a true partner by assisting member practices in lowering expenses, finding new sources of revenue, and creating member-owned assets that will grow over time. By utilizing this three-pronged approach, Gastrologix works differently than a traditional GPO, going far beyond simply aggregating purchasing power to negotiate favorable terms on the purchase of goods and services.
