An Important COVID-19 Resource Update: AHRMM Is Vetting Non-Traditional Suppliers Offering PPE and Other Critical Supplies

AHRMM is vetting non-traditional suppliers offering personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical supplies for the health care supply chain. Please bookmark this page ahrmm.org/COVID-19 and check back often as we continue to update this list daily.

Browse the Suppliers >>

All suppliers are being reviewed through the Vendormate solution using the Fraud Abuse Control Information Systems (FACIS) Level 1M search which is considered the minimal “best practice” and includes all federal level data. Searches are being performed against agency sources of information including Office of the Inspector General (OIG), System for Award Management (SAM), and the FDA. FACIS Level 1M also includes state level Federal Healthcare Entitlement Program (FHEP) related data. This includes information such as state offices of the Medicaid Inspector General or equivalent state’s Attorneys General, the Medicaid Healthcare Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (“HEAT”) content and any state level contractor or procurement debarment data.

The listing of these suppliers or their products is for informational purposes only, and in no way constitutes or should be viewed as an endorsement by AHRMM or the American Hospital Association. AHRMM strongly recommends that you follow your organizations vendor review and approval policies and procedures.

  • Andover, Massachusetts, WittKieffer is pleased to collaborate with Yankee Alliance as the organization seeks a dynamic, innovative leader to serve as its next CEO. Based in Andover, MA, Yankee Alliance is a long standing group purchasing organization focused on reducing supply and operating expenses for its members, and excelling in strategic innovations. Today, Yankee Alliance consists of over 16,000 members in all classes of trades across all 50 states. The organization is successful financially, and enjoys a strong reputation given their ability to build long-lasting relationships and achieve success for their members. As the largest shareholder and a member of Premier Inc., Yankee Alliance has access to over 2,200 contracts negotiated with over $42 billion in purchasing power, as well as access to Premier programs and services to meet their members' non-purchasing needs. Last year alone members saved over $110 million dollars. Due to the planned retirement of the current CEO, the Board seeks a growth- and relationship-oriented leader who possesses a well-demonstrated strategic skill set, as well as a contemporary understanding of supply chain trends. While an understanding of supply chain is important, we welcome interest from leaders who possess experience with performance improvement initiatives and initiating and expanding services and programs, including experience leveraging the role of technology. Given what has been revealed through the pandemic relative to the disruptions in the supply chain, and because ongoing success for the Alliance will mean finding new ways to grow and deliver value, the Alliance Board seeks an individual with an orientation and track record of advancing practical, proven solutions, yet who also possesses an entrepreneurial, innovative orientation. Candidates must possess exceptional relationship building skills and have a history of building trusting, sustaining relationships with executive-level leaders. Continuing to grow membership and programs and services are key priorities for the Alliance and its CEO. The CEO will establish effective relationships with Premier's team of leaders, identifying opportunities, leveraging Premier's services, program and strengths and advocating as appropriate for the Alliance. While healthcare experience is helpful in terms of understanding the issues that face the Alliance's members, we also welcome interest from leaders with a contemporary understanding of supply chain, performance improvement and relevant issues to the Alliance's members, and who have gained this experience through other industries. Given the cohesive culture of the Yankee Alliance team, we seek a culture builder who is a natural, gifted leader with developing trust and who possesses a clear track record of empowering, motivating and developing high performing teams.
