WHO WE ARE

The Delta Purchasing Alliance (DPA) is the only national purchasing alliance owned and operated by community health centers. It is named in honor of those pioneering health centers founded in the mid-1960s in the Mississippi Delta. The DPA offers its members significant cost savings on medical supplies and equipment, as well as office supplies. DPA founding members include some of the leading health centers in the United States.

WHO WE ARE
HOW IT WORKS

HOW IT WORKS

The Delta Purchasing Alliance (DPA) builds on the benefits offered by a group purchasing organization (GPO). Prices negotiated by GPOs are generally “marked-up” by distributors for warehousing and shipping supplies. This “mark-up” can significantly increase the price of supplies and equipment. The DPA’s approach makes use of the axiom that there is “strength in numbers.” By working together as a group and channeling their business into a single medical and office supply distributor, the DPA has successfully reduced their distributor “mark-up” and achieved incredible cost savings without changing what they order.

OUR PARTNERS

Delta Purchasing Alliance (DPA) is proud to work with NACHC’s Value in Purchasing (ViP) program and their GPO partner, Provista. ViP and Provista ensure that DPA members get the best possible GPO cost while the DPA – by funneling their business through the largest national distributors of medical and office supplies – secures the lowest possible distributor “mark ups.”
