Value First, Inc. is a group purchasing organization designed for aging services providers who seek expanded choice, intelligent solutions and significant savings. We offer collective buying power and contracts negotiated specifically for customers whose mission is better care and better outcomes for older adults. Value First is owned by LeadingAge (formerly AAHSA) and 25 LeadingAge affiliates in collaboration with MedAssets.
With our partners, we offer:
By unifying the efforts and energies of our participants, we leverage a collective buying pool voice of more than 7,000 aging services provider organizations. The strength of MedAssets comes from serving more than 180 health systems, 4,000 hospitals and 75,000 non-acute healthcare providers.
Value First emerged from a collaboration of LeadingAge (formerly AAHSA), LeadingAge affiliates and MedAssets, Inc., designed to help every member across the purchasing continuum. With Value First, more people will be on your team, providing you access to a bigger buying pool, purchasing volume, and leverage for better contract prices.
MedAssets recently acquired The Broadlane Group, a leading provider of supply chain management, supplies and centralized procurement. This combines two of the top four healthcare group purchasing organizations in the nation and brings together some of the best pricing and contract depth in the field accomplished by leveraging over $40 billion in purchasing volume.
Value First’s enrolled providers have access to more than 400 vendors backed by a national contracting team that customizes contracts for Value First customers.
