Leading U.S. Children’s Hospitals and Premier, Inc. Collaborate to Advance High-Quality Pediatric Care

Kiindo™ program enables cost, quality and outcomes improvement for pediatric providers.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 13, 2023 — Premier, Inc. (NASDAQ: PINC), a leading technology-driven healthcare improvement company announces the addition of key hospitals to Kiindo™ – Premier’s pediatric-focused collaborative and purchasing alliance launched to help improve costs, quality and outcomes for U.S. children’s hospitals.

Recent Kiindo™ additions include Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Richmond (CHoR) at VCU and Virginia Children’s Care Network, a clinically integrated network managed by community pediatricians and supported by CHoR. These organizations join Boston Children’s Hospital, Baystate Health and other leading providers to advance high-quality care for children and families across the nation.

As a founding member, Boston Children’s Hospital provides oversight leadership of Kiindo™, working with Premier and other members to develop solutions designed to meet the needs of children’s hospitals. Ranked the #1 children's hospital in the nation by U.S. News & World Report nine years running, Boston Children’s is the primary pediatric teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

Children’s hospitals can be particularly vulnerable to supply chain disruptions, as some critical products have only one supplier capable of producing the necessary pediatric-specific equipment and supplies. Kiindo™ leverages the collective buying power of pediatric providers to develop and sustain a leading contract portfolio specifically focused on the unique needs of children’s hospitals. In addition, the program provides a dedicated channel and opportunities for member best practices and co-developed innovations, including the launch, scale and commercialization of new products, technologies and services that can improve pediatric care.

“Our pediatric experts work every day to provide excellent care and continue to innovate and improve our processes and procedures,” said Trey Eubanks, MD, Interim President and Surgeon-in-Chief at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. “We appreciate Kiindo™ for helping us ensure we continue to provide seamless care for our patients by collaborating with our fellow children’s hospitals around the country.”

“Baystate Health is pleased to participate in Kiindo™, focusing on product and services around our special pediatrics patients,” said Mary Gentile, Clinical Value Analysis Manager at Baystate Health. “Baystate’s Children Hospital strives to provide the best care for our pediatric patients, and this program allows us to collaborate with other hospitals and vendors to ensure we have the best products and services for our children.”

Guided by an Advisory Committee composed of prestigious children’s hospitals across the nation, Kiindo™ members can also leverage Premier’s PINC AI™ technology platform to determine optimal products and services for pediatric patients as well as find savings opportunities.

“With our key pediatric hospital partners, Premier is committed to driving innovation in children’s healthcare,” said David A. Hargraves, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain at Premier. “Our purchasing power, technology and peer network is helping Kiindo™ members scale solutions and create differentiated value for patients. We look forward to our continued partnership to design and implement a high-value supply chain system and efficient care delivery model that complements the superior care pediatric patients require every day.”
