Captis Members

Our member driven and owned organization spans the United States and has evolved into an industry leader in supply chain and healthcare performance improvement. Captis members commit to centralized sourcing and contracting and together explore supply chain and clinical opportunities.  They make decisions collectively based on what is best for the alliance as a whole, rather than individually for their organization.  Captis members also hold each other accountable for delivering upon commitments made.

Captis works closely with its suppliers to deliver innovative, clinically acceptable and financially beneficial contracts and programs.  Captis has become an accomplished and trusted partner to the supplier community differentiated by its ability to deliver on commitments and a structure that enables accountability. Captis and its suppliers work together to achieve mutual success and pursue new forms of value.

Mayo Clinic provides sourcing and contracting services for Captis members.  Contracting initiatives engage Captis members and follow Mayo Clinic’s go-to-market strategy.  In most cases, contracts are addendums to Vizient base agreements which reflect Captis member aggregated spend or other member commitments such as market share or volume.

Captis uses sourcing strategies that include sole, dual or multi-source awards, site-based sole award commitments / market share, related-category multiple contract awards, rebate incentives, risk share, increased administrative fee, and/or corporate overlays/agreements.

Captis utilizes the aptitude platform for many of its contracting initiatives.  In addition, Captis reveal™, a data sharing resource developed with aptitude LLC, allows members and suppliers to access powerful insights that helps maximize compliance and understand overall performance.

Suppliers are requested to work with the Captis Service Provider Team, namely Mayo Clinic Supply Chain Management on all membership contractual opportunities.  It is requested that suppliers refrain from pursuing individual site-based agreements.
