Becoming a TPC Member Brings Meaningful Cost Reductions for Healthcare Organizations

When Hendrick Health System joined TPC in 2011, the organization saw a significant reverse in a years-long trend of rising supply costs. In 2005, supply expense as a percentage of net revenue at Hendrick was at 23%; by 2014, that number had dropped to 18.9%. “That, to me, is a very telling story about the amount of value that TPC has added,” explains Jeremy Walker, Chief Financial Officer of Hendrick Health System. “Overall, the TPC solution has saved our {combined} organizations over $180 million since 2010,” Walker says.

Experiences like this are seen across the TPC membership. CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System was able to bring a local initiative to TPC, and though the aggregated volume of Members, TPC successfully negotiated with the manufacturer to achieve a larger rebate for the collective group than what CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances was able to do on their own. “The good deal we thought we had got a little better,” says Wyley McCoy, Administrative Director of Pharmacy at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances.
