Gastrologix is the only Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) in the U.S. working strictly on behalf of independent gastroenterologists.
We work with independent GI practices to lower costs, operate more efficiently and expand services, so that GI physicians can remain independent and continue to provide a valuable alternative to the more expensive care provided in hospitals.
Gastrologix has developed a “one-stop-shop” program for the endoscopy needs of its member groups. This includes items such as:
- Disposables (Microtech)
- New Endoscopes (Fujifilm)
- Certified Pre-Owned Scopes (Northfield Medical)
- Scope Reprocessing Equipment and Supplies (Medivators)
- Capital Equipment (Avante Medical)
- General Distribution (Henry Schein)
This program recently produced savings of between $450-$500K for a member practice relating to the outfitting of a new endoscopy center.
We partner with Besse Medical for the purchase of infusion drugs. Member groups, depending on the size of their infusion programs, have achieved significant annual savings. It takes less than 15 days to effect the change and start saving. The success of the Infusion Therapy purchasing program allows Gastrologix to work directly with pharmaceutical manufacturers to develop future programs to more directly benefit our member practices.
We have an exclusive agreement with IntroMedics, the provider of both single and dual camera capsules. This technology, with its 340˚ view surpasses the industry standard of 170˚ view at a favorable price point and without the restrictions of long-term contracts.
