Global Healthcare Exchange to Acquire Neoforma MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers

Sep 15, 2013

Posted by mddiadmin on October 1, 2005 Share !> Consolidation in the electronic healthcare marketplace continued in October with the announcement that the Global Healthcare Exchange LLC (GHX; Westminster, CO) will acquire Neoforma Inc. (San Jose, CA) in an estimated $200 million deal. GHX was founded in 2000 by five major medtech firms: Johnson & Johnson Inc. (New Brunswick, NJ); GE Healthcare (Chalfont St. Giles, UK) ; Baxter International Inc. (Deerfield, IL); Medtronic Inc. (Minneapolis); and Abbott Labs (Abbott Park, IL). The company links 150 manufacturer divisions with more than 2200 hospitals. Neoforma, launched in 1996, currently serves 1600 hospitals. GHX claims to be the largest healthcare exchange in the country by virtue of the number of hospitals it serves. In terms of annual trading volume, however, Neoforma at $13 billion surpasses GHX's $8 billion. The merger was not unexpected. The two companies formed a partnership in 2001, and Neoforma announced last December that it was pursuing strategic alternatives, including the possible sale of the company. Under the terms of the merger, GHX will pay $10 for each share of Neoforma stock that is not owned by its two major shareholders, VHA Inc. (Irving, TX) and University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC; Oakbrook, IL). These entities will become equity participants in GHX following the merger. VHA and UHC are the owners of Novation LLC (Irving, TX), a leading group purchasing organization (GPO) and Neoforma's largest customer. GHX announced separately that it has entered into a new outsourcing agreement with VHA, UHC, and Novation. GHX's Mahoney: Streamlining the supply chain. Describing the acquisition as an “opportunity to continue improving efficiencies and lowering costs in the healthcare supply chain,” Michael Mahoney, CEO of GHX, said, “By combining these two organizations, GHX can offer new services to a broader range of both buyer and seller participants, and enable greater efficiencies across the supply chain.” Robert Zollars, chairman and CEO of Neoforma, added, “This combination with GHX will provide our customers with more cost-effective solutions at an accelerated pace.” Many smaller medtech manufacturers are likely to see the GHX acquisition of Neoforma as yet another threat to an open and competitive marketplace. Although GHX bills its service as “open and neutral,” critics are quick to point out that GHX is owned by large medtech manufacturers and therefore not particularly motivated to foster competition. MDMA's Leahey: Concern for small manufacturers. Tags:
