(Dallas – Dec. 8, 2009) – Broadlane, the leading end-to-end supply chain partner for healthcare providers, announced today that Greater Hazleton Health Alliance (GHHA) has saved nearly $500,000 in nine months by leveraging Broadlane’s unique services.  GHHA is located in Hazleton, Pennsylvania and spends approximately $18 million on supply expenses at its facilities which include 150-bed Hazleton General Hospital, Hazleton Health & Wellness Center, Hazleton General Home Care and several associated physician practices.

GHHA has selected Broadlane’s Strategic Sourcing Solutions, leveraging the un-rivaled national GPO portfolio of consumable supplies, equipment, pharmaceuticals and purchased services.  GHHA can access contracts, view actionable informatics reports and download training materials online via OnRamp®, Broadlane’s client portal.

“During a time of limited operating budgets, we were seeking a solution that could not only deliver supply savings but also streamline supply chain processes,” said Jim Edwards, chief executive officer, Greater Hazleton Health Alliance.  “After careful consideration and exploring other GPOs, we learned that Broadlane stands apart in its ability to deliver the results we require. We’re so pleased with the savings and improvements we’ve seen to date.”

GHHA also utilizes Broadlane’s Supply Chain Solutions offerings – including the BroadLink® e-commerce exchange and Transaction Management Services – to automate and manage transactions between GHHA facilities and suppliers electronically.  Transaction Management Services are delivered through Broadlane’s National Procurement Center in Dallas, Texas.
