Our purchasing network supports member strategies

Our contracting strategy helps health systems increase access through contracted pricing that makes specialty medications more affordable. Our network is strategically limited to institutions that want to participate in performance-based contracting across specialty-branded medication administered by IV infusion, injection, or select oral medications. 
Because we are the only distributor-owned, trade-specific GPO, we provide unique solutions that support your formulary-management strategies and help with consistent and appropriate product utilization. We have tailored our offerings to align to health system priorities, and we provide several first-to-market solutions that are only available through SAN.
