In order to improve UAE’s health industry, the Bridge Medical GPO inked a Memorandum of Understanding with JAGGAER at GITEX to focus on applying industry-best procurement practices.
JAGGAER will provide a SaaS-based source-to-pay solution designed to automate routine processes with the help of machine learning, enabling global procurement teams to create even more value in the short and long term, according to the new partnership, which was officially announced at GITEX.
Darren Martin, Director of Commercial and Group Operations, said: “Powerful Procurement Partners is our value proposition and represents who we are and our promise to our members. We are excited to be signing this MOU today with JAGGAER and working together with Dubai Smart Government to deliver the Vision of H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”

The first Healthcare Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) to launch in the UAE is Bridge Medical GPO. The corporation has now laid out a strategy that will focus on improving performance across the UAE’s healthcare industry. This would entail applying industry-best procurement practices and optimizing supply chains to give enhanced commercial benefits to regional hospitals, distributors, and providers.
