Supplier Success Stories

Supplier Diversity Program

Intalere firmly believes that minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned businesses are the cornerstones of economic development. The Intalere Supplier Diversity Program works to solidify that foundation and create increased opportunities for these businesses.

Intalere fosters business relationships with minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned businesses where it supports and reflects the needs of the membership. In addition, those contracted Intalere suppliers that do business with minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned suppliers will be viewed as providing additional value to Intalere members.

To be considered for a first tier position, a minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned business must provide market competitive pricing and/or service and support, and provide a purchase advantage for Intalere members. Intalere also cultivates minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned businesses by linking them with Intalere supplier partners interested in this type of business development. Minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned businesses not interested in a direct contracting relationship might provide a finished product or service that is incorporated into the offering of another Intalere supplier partner, thus benefiting from the national presence of their new partner.

Intalere is also one of the founding members of the Healthcare Supplier Diversity Alliance (HSDA) which is an informal network of healthcare organizations who are working together to grow market share for diverse companies in healthcare. HSDA builds and facilitates programs that raise awareness of supplier diversity in healthcare, provides diversity business enterprises with information and instruction on navigating the healthcare supply chain that will enhance the development of their organizations, and builds network relationships to provide opportunities to strengthen market share.
