Group Purchasing

Get the Most Out of Your TCC Membership

Take Advantage of TCC’s Group Purchasing Program in Partnership with the NC Hospital Association!

NCHA Strategic Partners, a subsidiary of the North Carolina Hospital Association, focuses on providing health care providers value-added services through needs-based solutions. This supply cost management program features the portfolio of Provista/Novation. One of the nation’s largest group purchasing organizations, Provista helps nearly 70,000 non-acute facilities and more than 1200 acute care facilities reduce and control their supply costs while streamlining the procurement process.

Provista members always have access to the most comprehensive portfolio of products and services at the most competitive pricing. Provista’s agreements with nearly 700 best-of-breed suppliers and distributors represent more than 90 percent of health care purchasing needs. By pooling Provista’s purchasing volumes with those of our supply contracting company, Novation, we leverage nearly $40 billion in combined purchases. This purchasing power enables Provista to command higher discounts when negotiating contracts with manufacturers, distributors and other vendors and pass the savings on to program participants.
