Illucient Purchasing Alliance: SAHA’s Joint Venture with the Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA)

Over the past few years, mergers and acquisitions have dominated the healthcare headlines.  Last fall, SAHA took a page from the healthcare merger and consolidation playbook and on October 21, 2014, filed Articles of Organization to enter into a joint venture with the Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA) to combine the purchasing power of both alliances under one entity. That venture, known today as the Illucient Purchasing Alliance, effectively doubles the negotiating footprint of each alliance and will provide members of both alliances with a broader and more price-competitive contract portfolio. 

Both SAHA and CCHA will remain fully independent with regard to their networking efforts, educational offerings, and governance.  For all practical purposes, the formation of Illucient gives SAHA members the best of both worlds – our small, collegial atmosphere will be preserved, but our members will reap the savings benefits that come from being a part of a much larger organization.

Most contracts going forward will be negotiated and marketed under the Illucient banner.  Our current portfolio has over 90 contracts covering several areas of the hospital, including but not limited to finance/revenue cycle, supply chain, nursing, operations, pharmacy, HR, HIM, Lab and IT to name a few.

Contract negotiations on behalf of Illucient are performed by an Operations Committee made up of staff members from both SAHA and CCHA.

Illucient represents 24 hospital systems and 44 facilities covering 34 counties in 3 states!
