At Advantus Health Partners, we’re continuing to reshape health care supply chains, working to ensure that the industry remains resilient and efficient. In a recent interview with Pulse 2.0, Dan Hurry, president of Advantus, provided insights into how Advantus is revolutionizing health care supply chains.
Navigating Uncharted Waters
Launching a supply chain company amidst a global pandemic was no small feat. However, it is a point of pride for our team to have managed to ensure none of our hospitals or providers went without life-saving Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and essential medical equipment.
The Impact of the Climate
In the article, Dan acknowledges the challenges posed by the current macroeconomic climate, emphasizing that health care’s financial pressures affect every facet of our operations. Nevertheless, we sees it as our responsibility to innovate supply chain solutions, reduce financial burdens, and maintain high-quality patient outcomes.
Advantus Health Partners isn’t just a GPO; we’re an end-to-end supply chain company. Our core services encompass strategic sourcing, supply chain optimization, clinical transformation, operations, finance, pharmacy services, strategy, business development consulting, and purchased services for clinical engineering and hospitality.
Leveraging Technology for Efficiency
Technology and data play pivotal roles in addressing rising health care costs and resource constraints. Advanced analytics and digitization of the supply chain enable Advantus to provide the right products to patients at the right time, improving efficiency and patient care.
Customer Success Stories
In the article, Dan shared stories of the savings we have helped achieve for clients, such as 25-30% savings for a new client in the implant space and substantial savings through partnerships with industry leaders like GE Healthcare and Medline.
Setting Ourselves Apart
What makes Advantus unique is that we’re are not just consultants; we are health care operators. We actively provide supply chain services to the health care industry and serve as the supply chain function for a major regional health system.
Pioneering Domestic PPE Production
As we look ahead to 2024, Advantus is set to be the first and largest customer of Emerge Manufacturing, a new PPE sourcing and manufacturing facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. This investment in domestic PPE production not only strengthens supply chain resilience, but also reduces our carbon footprint.

As we navigate uncharted waters and address the challenges of today’s health care landscape, our dedication to innovation, efficiency, and the well-being of patients and providers drives our mission forward.
