A part of Novaplus®, the industry’s longest-running private label program, the Novaplus Enhanced Supply Program delivers additional inventory of essential medications and products, including personal protective equipment (PPE), that are critical to your clinicians' ability to provide immediate and high-quality patient care. 

Under the program, suppliers provide additional inventory of essential products to mitigate supply disruptions and demand surge. This innovative contracting model helps providers and suppliers increase supply assurance through clearer data insights, diversified relationships, and visibility into logistical and other considerations that affect production – enabling greater stability between supply and demand.

Overview of the Novaplus Enhanced Supply program

The program supports our efforts to improve supply chain resiliency and end product shortages through supplier agreements characterized by:

  • Transparency: greater insights into origin, production and inventory
  • Accountability: strengthened requirements to enable health systems to offer seamless continuity of care through consistent supply
  • Commitment to supply: increased predictability of demand to support additional production that is warehoused in the U.S.

Consistent access to essential medications

Gain access to additional inventory of essential medications that, if not available, could threaten a hospital’s ability to provide immediate and high quality patient care.

With Novaplus Enhanced Supply, contracted suppliers provide additional supply of both Novaplus private label and manufacturer-labeled products, supporting the needs of both inpatient and outpatient facilities. By purchasing essential medications through this program, health care facilities receive enhanced financial value and benefits built on the foundation of the industry’s longest-running private label program, without the need for new forms, fees or commitment.
