Group Purchasing

Group Purchasing Organization
NRHP coordinates a group purchasing program through an affiliation with Health Future (a hospital-based healthcare network in Oregon), and MedAssets. Participants access regional and national pricing and have access to technology that fosters effective management of supply cost.

Long Distance Savings Program
By pooling members’ long distance minutes NRHP is able to achieve a volume discount. A shared group contract, NRHP members in the AT&T service area participate as a benefit of membership.

Reference Lab
This group contract provides discounted rates for reference lab services through Quest to participants. The program is available to both NRHP members and non-members on a fee-for-service basis.

Charge Master Review
NRHP members enjoy a discount from our vendor of choice, Bay Area Healthcare Consulting, for evaluation and recommendations for improvement and maintenance of charge master and charge capture systems.

Coding
Bay Area Healthcare Consulting offers a discount to NRHP members for services related to coding. Services can range for full outsourcing of all coding functions to a service related solely to coding problems.

RAC Compliance
