The OPIE Choice Network recently announced Endolite is now the primary provider of K2- and K3-level prosthetic feet for the OPIE Choice Network’s group purchasing organization. Endolite also will be the primary liner supplier of K2 and K3 feet for the group purchasing organization (GPO).
The new GPO approach was led by a product selection committee that used network member data to create a product procurement process with OPIE partners.
“This partnership represents a commitment by Endolite to support the growing network of innovative independent O&P practices,” Chris Nolan, vice president and general manager of Endolite, stated in a press release. “We took our time to examine how the development of the Choice Network GPO would benefit O&P providers, and we took care to integrate this new GPO program into our existing distribution channels. We are excited to take our relationship with the OPIE team into this new venture of serving O&P clinicians.”
“Endolite is a long-term partner of the OPIE System, and it is incredible to see the value of becoming involved with the Choice Network GPO,” Mark Ford, president of the OPIE Choice Network, stated in the release. “This new group purchasing process utilizes the data from our software systems to create a transparent process for suppliers and members alike. The collaborative nature of these relationships is an exciting step forward to use collective data in ways that benefit our members, supplier partners and the O&P profession at large.”
