We strive to provide quality products and services that best serve our business needs and patients where the measurements are cost, quality, and outcomes.

When doing business with suppliers, the Supply Chain Organization (SCO) strives for characteristics that we believe make good business relationships including the following:

  • Commitment to processes that support managing total costs, quality initiatives, and customer service
  • Development of enhanced business relationships, as appropriate, with suppliers who are practicing performance management and process improvement

About the Sourcing Calendar

The Sourcing Calendar to the right has the category of products or services that Intermountain is planning to source. Current or prospective suppliers should review the calendar to see where your product or service fits. We will only be sourcing items on the calendar. Check back in the future if you can't find your items as we will not be engaging suppliers until their products or services come due.

What We Ask and Expect from Suppliers

We are a centralized SCO where contracted products, capital, software, and services are purchased for all hospitals and clinics in a systematic way.  Therefore we often seek suppliers who can service our entire system.

Intermountain policy requires our employees to engage with the SCO before contracting with any new supplier.  We ask all suppliers to respect this policy.

Intermountain suppliers are required to report any and all suspected compliance violations.  Intermountain does not retaliate against any individual who reports suspected compliance violations in good faith.  Call the 24-hour Compliance Hotline at 1-800-442-4845.

Product Standards

Product Standards

By reducing variation in our supplies, we can cut costs and increase consistency without sacrificing patient outcomes.

Intermountain seeks to standardize in areas where there is unnecessary duplication, unecessary expense, and waste.  This is critically important to affordability for our patients and members, and it is one of the measures of our aspiration to be a model health system.
