The European Health Public Procurement Alliance

The European Health Public Procurement Alliance (EHPPA) is a pioneering international public sector partnership which specialises in procurement, benchmarking and innovation. NHS Commercial Solutions, along with French organisation Resah-IDF founded EHPPA in May 2011. The organisation provides members with an environment to share expertise and discuss a programme of activities, including international benchmarking.

NHS Commercial Solutions’ Chief Executive, Alyson Brett, is President of EHPPA. Since its inception, the Alliance has now been expanded to include Germany, Holland and Switzerland, further enhancing its reach.

Its members are now able to improve strategic decision making through increased market intelligence and develop a greater understanding of global market influences, changes and trends, helping to drive maximum value from commercial spend. EHPPA combines this market intelligence and procurement expertise, directly contributing to the development of effective healthcare management and enhancing the financial performance of healthcare organisations.

EHPPA has delivered high quality market research and data analytics in a number of categories, including pharmacy, cardiology and IT. Key products and categories for 2012/13 have been identified as cardiology, orthopaedics, laboratory consumables and services. Through harnessing this knowledge on an international basis, EHPPA can benchmark key strategic categories and ensure that it continues to identify and deliver innovation across the healthcare sector. By working with EHPPA, other healthcare organisations can be involved in driving forward benchmarking on a range of high spend and strategically significant commodities.
