WAYNE, NJ–( May 31, 2016) – Konica Minolta announced today that the company has received the Platinum Supplier award from Vizient (formerly MedAssets), the largest Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) in the country. Presented during the 16th annual Healthcare Business Summit held in late April in Las Vegas, the award was given to just five percent of the 2,400 companies that contract with Vizient. It exemplifies the Konica Minolta commitment to promoting quality and value in the supply chain, and being a strong corporate citizen.
“This Platinum Supplier distinction enables healthcare facilities to have confidence in Konica Minolta as a company that goes above and beyond in order to provide solutions that are not only cost effective, but that help them to achieve their goals,” said Gordon Walker, Senior National Accounts Manager, Konica Minolta. “Vizient recognizes the quality and value of Konica Minolta as a supplier partner and the impact that our solutions are having on improving the patient experience, improving clinical outcomes and reducing the capital cost of care.”
Recipients of the Platinum Supplier award were evaluated on more than a dozen criteria divided amongst two main categories: business partner and support and social responsibility. Specifically, a vendor’s ability to work in a timely fashion with a healthcare system, and to meet all foundational terms including service and support weighed heavily in the decision process. Overall commitment to environmentally responsible business practices, charitable giving, and operating with ethics and corporate responsibility were also given high consideration for the award.
Konica Minolta is currently on both the Computed Radiography (CR) and Digital Radiography (DR) contracts with Vizient (MedAssets). For more information on these solutions, visit http://www.konicaminolta.com/medicalusa/.
