Medline, a global manufacturer and distributor of medical products with patient-centered solutions, services and expertise across the continuum of care, today announced it has been awarded two new agreements with Resource Optimization & Innovation (ROi) through ROi’s Pre-Commitment Program. The three-year collaboration will take effect on Feb. 1, 2018.

ROi’s Pre-Commitment Program is designed to generate significant value for ROi members through high-quality, clinically validated supplies sourced at the lowest price, made possible through the members’ pre-committed purchasing volume. ROi serves more than 250 hospitals and 2,800 non-acute facilities across the U.S.

“Our members are experiencing tremendous benefits from the ROi Pre-Commitment Program,” explains Joshua Sandler, vice president, group purchasing, ROi. “We will continue to work closely with our supplier partners to provide opportunities like the Medline agreements for our members.”

Through the Medline agreements, ROi members will have access to a portfolio of products related to traditional wound care and incontinence categories, including gauze, bandages, abdominal pads, underpads and briefs.

“Medline is honored to have been chosen as a collaborative partner with ROi for basic wound care and incontinence items.  These agreements will provide the highest quality products to help improve patient care for the ROi membership. Medline’s and ROi’s aligned goals in driving clinical outcomes, coupled with Medline’s breadth of high quality products at competitive pricing, were the driving forces in the award,” says Dan Johns, vice president, national accounts, Medline.
