Cost Savings

SAHA negotiates contracts with vendors on behalf of member hospitals, based on needs identified by the various SAHA teams. This way, member hospitals can enjoy cost savings through volume buying via group purchasing contracts, can save the time it takes to compare and evaluate vendors, and can have access to services they may not otherwise be able to afford.

Illucient Purchasing Alliance

Illucient Purchasing Alliance, a joint venture with the Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA) to combine the purchasing power of both alliances under one entity, effectively doubles the negotiating footprint of each alliance. It provides members of both alliances with a broader and more price-competitive contract portfolio. 

Contract negotiations on behalf of Illucient are performed by an Operations Committee made up of staff members from both SAHA and CCHA. Illucient's current portfolio has over 150 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. Agreements are below.
