03 Jan HGPII Guidance on Conflict of Interest
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.
Our White Paper on Conflicts of Interest is intended to provide general guidance for compliance officers and key personnel in companies implementing HGPII standards. All member organizations have express permission to utilize this document in implementing internal training initiatives and compliance programs. We recommend that any specific conflict issue be resolved in conformance with company procedures and by consulting counsel.
We welcome your review of this White Paper, its substance, and its utility. We may periodically update this document to reflect your recommendations and developments in best practices. Your questions and comments are encouraged.
Thank you in advance for your time and interest. We appreciate your company’s commitment to HGPII and its mission.
Warmest personal regards,
