Paragon Development Systems announced today the extension and enhancement of its contract with MSS (Mid-America Service Solutions LLC) a Midwest based Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), to provide best in class equipment pricing and service consolidation to the 180-plus-members.
As a Vizient member aggregation group, MSS has contracted with PDS to provide IT services and equipment to its members to generate savings and efficiency across a broad spectrum of healthcare technology needs. The renewal extends the growing partnership through 2018.
PDS has been the nationally contracted Vizient (formally Novation/VHA/UHC) IT vendor since 2008, and a contracted vendor with the MSS Network since 2013 for IT equipment and services.
PDS continues to be an integral partner to the MSS membership. In the past three years, the partnership between PDS and MSS has resulted in the tripling of volume in products and services delivered to member hospitals, adding more value to all participating organizations each year.
“We’re honored to have been awarded this contract extension by MSS, and we look forward to supporting their members through another two years,” said Steve Milburn, Director GPO Strategic Sourcing at PDS. “We value greatly the opportunity to work with this group of healthcare providers and are constantly looking for ways to add more value.”
In line with this commitment PDS is offering an additional value-add to all MSS members utilizing PDS for the first time, in the form of a two percent rebate on all equipment and services purchases.
