Company Background

 Innovatix is a national group purchasing organization that has evolved to provide strategic procurement solutions and operational support to help pharmacies and other non-acute healthcare providers thrive. We supplement our industry-leading purchasing program with a consultative approach, in-depth analytics, vast healthcare expertise, and value-added and fee-based services specific to our members’ needs. Innovatix works tirelessly to deliver savings and value to members. 

Product Overview 

Innovatix offers one of the most extensive, competitive purchasing portfolios available today. We provide members access to a $48 billion purchasing portfolio comprising over 2,000 contracts through 900-plus suppliers. 

Value-Added Services

 Innovatix member benefits extend beyond the significant savings we provide through our group purchasing services. While group purchasing is at the core of what we do, Innovatix is committed to offering additional value to help our members grow and excel. 

Innovatix Educational Institute: Each month, Innovatix offers free accredited Continuing Education (CE) opportunities. Members can take advantage of these learning sessions from the convenience of their own computers. 

Government Affairs: To help our members navigate the complex healthcare regulatory environment and ensure that their concerns are properly addressed, the Innovatix Government Affairs program has continued to develop as an important value-added service, particularly for our long-term care pharmacy and infusion members. We keep members informed and advocate on their behalf, working closely with national advocacy organizations. 

Clinical Experts: Innovatix staff includes clinical pharmacists and physician consultants who provide members with best practice studies, disease state management information, formulary management, and medication error reduction strategies.
