FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – FEBRUARY 2024, Andover, MA, – MAGNET GROUP GPO, a group purchasing organization, is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Blue.Point. Through Blue.Point’s data management tools, MAGNET GROUP GPO members can save by analyzing product utilization, identifying savings opportunities, maintaining clinical product quality, and progress tracking.


This partnership aims to bring product utilization with clinical best practices to uncover achievable savings for members that integrate Blue.Point into their facility. Blue.Point’s detailed analytics allow health systems to compare their usage and practice across their system to other IDNs. The average savings per staffed bed is $6,000 for facilities that team up with Blue.Point.


“Blue.Point partners with health systems to identify utilization opportunities and align to clinical best practice – the result is consistent patient outcomes and generated savings. This is achieved through our robust comparator analytics and benchmarking tools that provide visibility into practices and products across departments and within a network. Furthermore, Blue.Point provides an achievable action plan, based on unbiased clinical research, as well as reporting capabilities to implement change and sustain savings,” said Vice President, Business Development, Laura Cieplik. As a recent example, our customized action plan helped to identify a higher than benchmark utilization rate of IV Primary Tubing. This saved a 200+ bed trauma center over $385K and better aligned the facility to their patients’ clinical needs.
