All members are invited and encouraged to participate in member led Councils and Committees. Committees are educational, provide information on new agreements, presentations from supplier partners and are open to all Capstone members. Councils are directional as they provide Capstone input and direction on contracting and other initiatives.
Members frequently share best practices and work on common projects. Our alliance offers the opportunity for members to share challenges with like facilities in a non-competitive environment
Capstone provides members exclusive access to the Capstone Learning Academy, an online education platform covering topics ranging from distribution to value analysis. Ongoing education is also offered through supplier partners presenting on industry hot topics and breakthrough technologies with many sessions providing continuing education.
Member dedicated resources include a region manager who serves an extension of your supply chain, your central point of contact and provides expertise with Premier tools and systems. Your region manager also conducts regular business reviews, provides savings reports and and offers contract support ensuring accurate pricing tiers and price parity. Contracts are activated on our member’s behalf as requested for acute care members and all owned/leased/managed facilities.
We are committed to open communication with our members. We communicate in a variety of methods including weekly contract updates, contract surveys and pharmacy impact statements.
