Maximize your buying power on the most frequently used medications in the hospital setting, including common injectables and oral drugs, as well as specialized medications designed to meet the needs of members working in paediatrics and oncology.



Our cross-country multi-disciplinary team of in-house and member experts conducts hands-on evaluations of medications against guidelines published by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP), and informed by Human Factors principles, ensuring that contracted products meet the highest standards of quality for in-hospital use.

Assurance of Supply

We work proactively to improve nationwide availability of critical medications and allocation practices. And when drug shortages occur, we work tirelessly to invoke remedial actions to mitigate the effects on our members, and then, take strategic action to alleviate the impacts of such situations in the future.


We combine our deep clinical, procurement and supply chain expertise with our knowledge of healthcare on the local, national and global scale to keep our members up to date and making the most informed decisions. 


With Canada representing only 2% of the global market, we amplify the voices of our members to impact product and market changes that improve safe medication management. Our efforts have resulted in 94% of injectable products now having a barcode on the unit-of-use and the introduction of 36 new fit-for-purpose products, which make the system safer.

Advance Notice of Product Changes

With the rapid increase of automation, hospital pharmacies now take advantage of an array of technology—from robotics and automated packaging and labelling machines to optical verifiers and compounding pumps—uniquely designed to gain resource efficiencies and contribute to medication safety.

Yet, when changes are made to pharmaceutical products that interface with these technologies—and especially with insufficient notice—unexpected and sometimes serious consequences can occur, including medication errors.
