BiP Solutions, the leading public sector supply chain specialist, has today launched its new Healthcare Contracts International (HCI) service.
HCI is the first of BiP’s next generation business intelligence services. It provides invaluable insight into the multi-trillion-pound global healthcare market; enabling existing and new suppliers to identify and win more business.
HCI’s unique technology platform, which leverages BiP’s significant investment into machine learning, surfaces more relevant opportunities faster. Customisable dashboards provide users with a slick and intuitive experience, enabling them to discover insights into buyer activity.
At a time of massive investment into health services – not least in the UK – HCI is a powerful tool that will help suppliers grow and buyers access a larger pool of innovative and value-adding partners.
HCI also showcases opportunities in other sectors that could be relevant to healthcare suppliers, broadening their potential customer base.
Simon Burges, CEO of BiP Solutions said:
“We have a great pedigree of creating business intelligence platforms which deliver customer value and see HCI as the next generation from a tech point-of-view. It also complements our other services that help thousands of suppliers and buyers engage and work successfully together.
“HCI is a hugely exciting product for us, especially when NHS spending is increasing dramatically; both in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the long-term commitment to invest more in healthcare, as outlined in the Government’s recent Spending Review.
“By surfacing more opportunities than ever before, we believe HCI will enable this investment to be accessed by a far wider supply base; providing buyers with a greater choice of innovative and high-value products and services.
“It is a proud moment to see all our development work come to fruition and to play our part in connecting suppliers with the health sector at such a critical time in its history.”
HCI expands BiP’s presence within the healthcare market. The company owns and manages two established healthcare procurement events which bring together healthcare buyers and suppliers: P4H and P4H Scotland.
BiP also works closely with the Health Care Supply Association (HCSA), whose Annual Conference and Exhibition on 24 November 2021 is the scene for the official launch of the new HCI service.
Keith Rowley, Chief Officer at the HCSA said:
“HCSA is delighted to see that HCI are launching this exciting new solution at our 2021 conference. We are committed to developing the NHS procurement profession and maintaining strong links with suppliers is a key part of this.
“At a time of increased focus and investment in procurement across the national health service, it’s more important than ever that buyers engage effectively and transparently. I hope this is one of a number of solutions that will support that aim, whilst also helping increase opportunities across the sector.”
