MED Alliance Group specializes in the sale and distribution of quality medical devices in the following service areas: Anesthesia and Respiratory, Blood and Transfusion Therapy, EMS and Emergency Room, Interventional Radiology and EP Cath Lab, IV and Vascular Access, NICU and PICU.

Biggest challenge/opportunity in the next 12 months - the changing face of healthcare. With more hospitals consolidating to survive, it is more important than ever for us to know who the decision makers are after the consolidations as well as understand the corporate strategy and processes put in place for medical device purchases. An ongoing initiative for MED Alliance will be to partner with our customers at the IDN level. By providing financial incentives and streamlining purchasing
efforts, we have the opportunity to increase and secure our business across the entire IDN, which will strengthen the position for all of our manufacturing partners. In addition, MED Alliance will continue to add new manufacturing partners who offer innovative products that complement the quality medical devices to which our customers have become accustomed. Having a comprehensive and diverse portfolio is critical to our success

Annual Conference Update

Be prepared for something new at this year’s IMDA Conference and Manufacturers Forum. For the first time, IMDA will be holding its conference in conjunction with HIRA, the Health Industry Representatives Association. Our business meetings will be separate, but we will share speakers, dinner, the Manufacturers Forum, even golf.

And why not? As independent companies, IMDA and HIRA members share many challenges and opportunities, such as:

  • Anticipating how healthcare reform will affect the buying habits of our customers

  • Navigating a supply chain inhabited by giants.

  • Honing our management skills.

  • Understanding value analysis, group purchasing and vendor credentialing

  • Improving our selling skills and those of our field reps

  • Identifying new medical technologies that will help our customers address their need for improved patient care at a lower cost.

The Conference will be held at the Chicago O’Hare Marriott Hotel, located close to O’Hare as well as convenient access to Downtown Chicago. We get started with our Golf Tournament on Saturday afternoon, July 22. Meetings and educational sessions begin Sunday afternoon. Get ready to view exciting medical technologies at the Manufacturers Forum, to be held Sunday evening, Monday evening and other break times. We will end at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25.

 Those who don’t golf on Saturday might consider going to Wrigley Field, where the Cubs are playing the Cardinals. Looking into tickets now, though, because Cubs/Cardinals games are usually sold out.

The cost to attend is only $700 per attendee. Sign up by April 30 and receive a $100 discount. Bring your spouse or partner (for meals only) for just $200.
