Giving Physicians Group Purchasing Power
Monterey Park, CA—May 1, 2013. SynerMed announced today the launch of a new store exclusively for doctors to provide group purchasing power and savings through its proprietary online STORE.
Purchasing products and services can be time-consuming for busy physicians but STORE allows physicians to shop with ease for essential products and services that they use every day at discounted rates.
“We understand the issues physicians face running a busy medical practice, while balancing overhead and minimizing costs,” said James Mason, President and Chief Executive Officer at SynerMed. “Independent traditional physicians are the cornerstone to our business and we want to bring greater value to them.”
SynerMed teamed up with leading manufacturers, suppliers and service providers to offer group purchasing power to physicians in their network. STORE is designed to offer a secure, convenient, virtual shopping experience that caters to doctors.
The company offers favorable discounts, pricing and preferred terms for products and services.
Doctors will find everything they need at STORE including vaccines, medical equipment, continuing medical education and more. The program is completely free—there are no fees and no minimum purchase is required.
STORE was developed to help physicians improve office efficiency and save time by streamlining the ordering process for products and services that are routinely used in medical practices.
“Our providers provide access to quality care and our vendors understand the populations they serve,” said David Kobrinetz, Executive Director of Physician Group Purchasing at SynerMed. “When physicians lower costs, it impacts their practice, patients and the healthcare system.”
The company intends to offer STORE to more physicians in the future. For more information about STORE visit www.synermed.com.
