Medline has announced it has entered into a multi-year prime vendor partnership, valued at $140M, with Nebraska-based Bryan Health. After being with a different distributor for over 30 years, the two organizations will collaborate to identify new strategies for enhancing patient outcomes and streamlining supply chain operations for the healthcare system. As the system’s primary supplier, Medline will exclusively provide an extensive portfolio of essential medical supplies and solutions to Bryan’s acute care medical centers in Lincoln, Grand Island, Crete and Central City, in addition to Kearney Regional Medical Center, which is already served by Medline.
As part of the agreement, dedicated Medline resources will work with Bryan Health to help address specific caregiver needs and operational efficiencies to support the system’s efforts in providing the highest quality of care for those they serve throughout the region. Bryan Health will also have the ability to easily monitor key metrics such as item utilization, contract compliance, price accuracy and spending by product categories through advanced analytics platforms from Medline.
