Maria Summers is the director for CHAMPS Group Purchasing, a business affiliate of The Center for Health Affairs. Summers is responsible for growing the GPO business line, building strategic partnerships and ensuring members realize their savings potential through the program's supply chain solutions.
Many people know the term GPO, but not everyone fully understands exactly what that entails and the potential impact that can be made on a member organization.

Today, I’m excited to take our supply chain prowess a step further by launching our Supply Chain Solutions blog.
