COVID-19 Information Center

Hear from GHX CEO, Bruce Johnson

A Message to Our Community

To the members of the GHX community who are working tirelessly to fight COVID-19:

This is a time of great uncertainty for us all. But we recognize there is even greater pressure on our healthcare providers and suppliers to have answers.

Patients are looking to caregivers to allay the fear their symptoms might be the coronavirus, for definitive diagnosis and a treatment path and how long it will take to fully recover. In turn, providers are looking to manufacturers who can reliably supply the critical medical equipment they desperately need – in the required quantity, in the shortest timeframe possible.

This dynamic ignited GHX to action. We created the COVID-19 Information Center to deliver the insights, data and tools to help our community tackle the pressing challenges of securing supplies, identifying clinically comparable product alternatives and setting up overflow care facilities. Our goal is to empower you to respond to the call for answers.

When GHX was founded 20 years ago there wasn’t a road map, but over time we collectively built an amazing community. This unprecedented time calls on us to re-imagine what healthcare’s ‘new normal’ looks like and we will build a stronger future together.

- Bruce Johnson
