The Premier Performance Awards recognize contracted suppliers for their outstanding management of Premier agreements and their drive toward the mutual goal of providing clinical and financial value to the more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals that are Premier alliance members.

Meeting and exceeding operational expectations
Each year, Premier chooses from among its more than 800 contracted suppliers for the award. For the 6th annual awards, in 2011, 38 suppliers, including Agfa HealthCare, were honored with a Performance Award. The awards applaud the efforts of these contracted suppliers to meet and exceed operational expectations. To select the recipients, performance data is collected and scored over four successive calendar quarters.

“Agfa HealthCare is proud to be able to provide high-quality digital imaging and healthcare IT solutions,” said Ray Russell, General Manager, Radiology Solutions Business, Agfa HealthCare US. “We remain committed to supporting the needs of both large and small healthcare organizations across the US.”
