The company optimises procurement practices and reduces supply chain costs for healthcare providers, including hospitals, medical centres, medical and dental clinics, and laboratories through membership services.
The company has now outlined a plan which will focus on delivering performance optimisation across the entire UAE healthcare sector. This will include implementing best and leading practices, procurement processes, and optimising supply chains to bring increased commercial benefits to healthcare organisations, vendors, and all providers in the region.
Darren Martin, Director of Commercial and Group Operations, said, “We are very proud to announce our launch into the Middle East market. Our software and processes will improve operating efficiencies for healthcare providers and vendors alike.”
“We are certainly not here to replace or compete with vendors and suppliers; we are here to drive industry-wide efficiencies that deliver improved profitability for all stakeholders. We have developed powerful analytical software that will be referred to as disruptive technology in UAE Healthcare for years to come. We refer to ourselves as Powerful Procurement Partners for a reason!”
Bridge Medical GPO has over 100 years of collective experience in procurement and supply chain management. The company is focused on delivering performance optimisation in the supply chain and procurement for healthcare providers and vendors in the UAE. This is done by providing performance optimisation software whereby the final product was built by healthcare supply chain professionals for healthcare supply chain professionals.
Hany Mosbeh, Vice President of Sales Middle East & Africa, JAGGAER, said, “JAGGAER is committed to modernising and transforming the procurement capabilities of companies in the UAE, the wider Middle East region and globally.”
