Sourcing Alternatives for Critical Supplies

date: Tuesday, March 17, 2020

In response to COVID-19, GHX is committed to helping ensure that our customers receive access to the data and information needed to help maintain critical supplies to serve patients and protect staff. 

We understand that inventory availability may be limited for specific medical product categories, resulting in a need to find alternative sources.

In order to support the healthcare community with these alternative source research efforts, GHX referenced McKinsey’s report, COVID-19 Crisis: US Healthcare Provider and Payer Preparedness a list of anticipated medical product shortages. Key data teams at both GHX and Lumere have identified multiple manufacturers and distributors that supply the items referenced in the McKinsey report and provided the following resources:
