The Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative’s 2020 Annual Public Accountability Report found that the Group Purchasing Organization sector continues to seek new ways of promoting transparency, best practices, and competition within the healthcare supply chain, and encourages member disclosure and self-regulation to meet national objectives.

In our capacity as a monitor and advocate of ethics and best practices in the healthcare supply chain, the Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative is providing guidance for practitioners involved in group purchasing activities in our member organizations and any part of the acute or long term care system.
