Changing the way healthcare does business

For two decades GHX has led healthcare into the digital age with our open and neutral electronic trading exchange (GHX Exchange). Today, the GHX Exchange is the most advanced, sophisticated and scalable e-commerce platform available in healthcare. Our solutions and value-added services offer sophisticated tools for automating all phases of the procure-to-pay and order-to-cash supply chain by helping customers drive workflow efficiencies in procurement, contract management, order lifecycle management, vendor credentialing and compliance, business intelligence, and invoice and payments.

It began with an aspiration to use the power of the internet to reduce inefficiencies rampant in the healthcare supply chain. Prompted by increased recognition of those inefficiencies, five of the world’s largest medical product manufacturers — Johnson & Johnson, GE Healthcare, Baxter International Inc., Abbott Laboratories and Medtronic, Inc. — founded GHX in 2000.  

Since the first purchase order successfully passed through the Exchange that year, we’ve come a long way. Our strong, long-term relationships with a wide range of healthcare manufacturers, distributors, providers and group purchasing organizations, has been key to the development of robust technology solutions that address challenges unique to healthcare and represent, and balance, the interests of all supply chain stakeholders.
