All GPOS Have Contracts, The Onmark GPO Delivers

The Onmark GPO team led an interactive discussion on how we approach contract negotiations and new and existing therapies. They revealed how they deliver results by focusing on new investments and leveraging community practice engagement to provide the best possible pricing on drug purchases.

“Our #1 one driver of success is our engagement with our members,” said Luke Rubie, vice president of GPO Services for McKesson Specialty Health. “It’s absolutely critical that we’re aligned and collaborating for a healthier future.”

Getting Involved Makes a Difference

“Half of the members in Congress have been there six years or less. To influence change that will allow you to succeed you need to continue to engage with your political leaders. If you get together, you can influence change and turn the corner,” said Congressman Pete Sessions. (R-TX).

Rep Sessions was joined on the stage by Brian Nyquist from the National Infusion Center Association (NICA) and Katie Jones, director of Federal Government Relations for McKesson Specialty Health.

Nothing Can Stop a Great Idea

Attendees participated in a bit of friendly competition at the Rheumatology Summit Innovation Tournament. This fun and interactive brainstorming activity leveraged the collective knowledge of each team to generate ideas that could help improve rheumatology for patients and practices.

Thanks to the innovative ideas and engaging participation, McKesson will donate $3,200 to the National Infusion Center Association (NICA).
