Embracing the strength in our differences & the immense value it brings to innovation
SourceMark is one of the healthcare industry’s largest certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and can offer more adaptability, flexibility, and balance as compared to a non-MBE supplier. In fact, procurement organizations that work with diverse suppliers have lower overall operating costs and spend 20 percent less on their buying operations.* By partnering with a diverse supplier, you gain better products at a better price for better patient outcomes.
Diversity of Thought
Diversity of thought allows us to hear new ideas, apply different approaches, and gain access to additional solutions that respond to client needs. We focus on harnessing unique perspectives and ways of thinking to drive both innovation and engagement, create conversations that stimulate original ideas, and yield positive friction that makes our team higher performing.
Diversity of People
We believe diversity of people gives us a unique understanding of what our clients and their patients experience and allows us to empathize with those clients, patients, and partners alike. Diversity in our organization facilitates meaningful, enriching relationships with safety-net hospitals (SNHs), group purchasing organizations (GPOs), and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) and lends itself to heightened market awareness for the advancement of healthcare for all.
Diversity of Background
Differing backgrounds and experiences breed innovation and original ideas and fuel new strategies that create growth opportunities. We foster an environment where everyone can feel safe bringing their unique perspective forward and enable nonlinear thinking and adaptability to drive the insights needed for innovation.
Diversity of Innovation
SourceMark recognizes that diversity is critical to fostering innovation and delivering exceptional value to our clients. Our belief is that ideas which innovate the clinical experience can come from anywhere in or outside the organization. We are committed to engage with those who have innovative product ideas and understand the value of partnering with inventors, entrepreneurs, and pioneers in the healthcare marketplace.
SourceMark's Economic & Social Impact
Driving Competitiveness, Unlocking Innovation, Improving Outcomes
Products & Services of Competitively High Quality & Value
Partnering with a diverse supplier can provide a competitive advantage to those who choose to embrace it – particularly in an era of increased competition and rapid technological change. The pool of potential suppliers widens and creates more competition within the supply base. At the same time, it can improve the quality of the product and reduce costs.
Unique Market Insights
Innovation comes mostly from small to medium-sized businesses, which makes incorporating such entities within the supply chain a critical factor for organizations seeking to bring new solutions and breakthrough technology to market. Diverse suppliers not only boost competitiveness and market growth, but also drive innovation through the introduction of new ideas, products, and services to make you more competitive.
A Resilient & Agile Supply Chain
Diverse suppliers can have a tremendous economic impact on your organization because they aid the development of resilient and agile supply chains by expanding the supplier base. There is increasing pressure on procurement to become more agile while remaining relevant and competitive. This can be achieved by looking beyond traditional ways of sourcing and creating diversity among your suppliers.
Diversity & Social Impact
But it goes further than these economic benefits to encompass social value. It’s also about the ability to reduce socio-economic inequality and create stronger, more stable communities. Pivoting from a mindset of pure cost savings to one that combines social value, sustainability and cost savings creates long-term significance.
