Contract provides service consolidation and significant cost savings to members through 2021

Milwaukee, WI, January 31, 2018 — Paragon Development Systems (PDS) today announced the extension of its contract with CAPTIS (formally Upper Midwest Consolidated Services Center or UMCSC) through the end of 2021. This contract provides IT services and equipment to all CAPTIS members, with dedicated account support, personalized on-boarding, and specialized pricing structures.

The PDS/CAPTIS contract will support efficiency efforts while generating significant cost savings across the healthcare technology spectrum. The contract includes a full range of IT services, equipment, and supplies from all major manufacturers. PDS also provides unparalleled fulfillment services to CAPTIS members, including equipment configuration, lifecycle management, stock management, and logistics. The IT technology company also offers service desk and patient portal support.

“This contract extension is a testament to our dedication to supporting CAPTIS members as they work towards fully connected IT within and across their organizations,” said Steve Milburn, Director GPO Strategic Sourcing at PDS. “Our team is focused on providing the best solutions with a focus on value, and this contract will enable PDS to provide cost-effective and industry-leading technology to all member facilities.”

PDS has been the contracted IT vendor to the UMCSC/CAPTIS membership since 2008 and has developed an effective contract structure that allows member facilities to act as a single, unified entity that provides additional contracting, distribution, and consolidated value. Healthcare organizations across the country rely on PDS to reduce total cost of ownership and drive IT operational efficiency, and the CAPTIS contract is designed to support these goals.

As part of this contract extension, PDS is offering a 2% rebate to all CAPTIS customers that have not previously done business with PDS. For more information on the CAPTIS contract or PDS Healthcare IT services, visit
