At Arab Health 2022, the debut of Bridge Medical GPO’s e-Procurement platform was formally revealed. JAGGAER, the supply management technology vendor behind the Dubai Government‘s procurement portaleSupply, created the powerful software platform.
The Bridge Medical GPO e-Procurement, contracting, and spend analytics software modules will enable UAE healthcare providers to adopt the best and most innovative procurement and supply chain management techniques in the world.
James Counts, President and CEO of Bridge Medical GPO, said: “I am pleased to announce our launch into the UAE market. We have a proven and successful business model that delivers immense operating efficiencies and value for our members.
“Speed to value is what we promise, and the world’s best and leading practices is what we deliver. Our e-Procurement and software platforms deliver state of the art procure to pay, analytics, contract management and reporting, to assist in better supply chain management and data-driven decision making.”
Bridge Medical GPO was one of the first healthcare GPOs to open in the United Arab Emirates. Through membership services, the organisation optimises procurement methods and lowers supply chain costs for healthcare providers such as hospitals, medical centres, medical and dental clinics, and laboratories.
The corporation has now laid out a strategy that will focus on improving performance across the UAE’s healthcare industry. Implementing best and leading practises, procurement processes, and supply chain optimization will all contribute to greater commercial benefits for healthcare organisations, vendors, and all providers in the region.
Darren Martin, Director of Commercial and Group Operations, said: “We are very proud to announce our launch into the Middle East market. Our software and processes will improve operating efficiencies for healthcare providers and vendors alike.
“We are certainly not here to replace or compete with vendors and suppliers; we are here to drive industry-wide efficiencies that deliver improved profitability for all stakeholders. We have developed powerful analytical software that will be referred to as disruptive technology in UAE Healthcare for years to come. We refer to ourselves as Powerful Procurement Partners for a reason!”

The company focuses on offering supply chain and procurement performance optimization for healthcare providers and vendors in the UAE. This is accomplished through the provision of performance optimization software, which was created by healthcare supply chain specialists for healthcare supply chain professionals.
