Last Call to Join Medical Main Street Networking Event with Group Purchasing Giant Amerinet Health Care

It was announced today that companies interested in becoming vendors to the area’s health care systems are running out of time to meet with Amerinet, one of the nation’s largest health care group purchasing organizations.

The press release went on to say that Medical Main Street and Southfield health care consultants HealthRise Solutions are sponsoring an informational and networking session that can help companies become approved vendors, potentially linking them to valuable contracts with the health care systems.

The event is set for Thursday, June 18 from 8-11 a.m. at HealthRise Solutions, 18000 W. Nine Mile Road, 10th Floor, in Southfield. Cost is $10 per participant. Register online at

“This must-attend Medical Main Street event is for any company interested in becoming a vendor and gaining access to some of the top health care systems in the country,” Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said.

Michael Rosenberry, director of member solutions for Amerinet, will discuss how becoming an approved vendor of a group purchasing organization (GPO) can give businesses an outlet for goods and services. Tom Kelly, chief operating officer for Automation Alley, will discuss funding opportunities.

GPOs help health care providers become more cost efficient. Many of the health care systems in Michigan require an affiliation with a GPO in order to become a registered vendor with their organization. There will be a question and answer segment as well as networking opportunities with representatives from Amerinet, Medical Main Street, Automation Alley, HealthRise, and other companies.

Medical Main Street, powered by Oakland County, is a collaboration of world renowned hospitals, universities and health care and life science companies in Southeast Michigan. Patterson created the initiative in 2008 to harness the strength of the area’s health care, life science, research and development, education and manufacturing assets.

The Medical Main Street board includes representatives from: Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, Beaumont Health, Beckman Coulter Molecular Diagnostics, Crittenton Hospital, Detroit Medical Center, Ferndale Laboratories, Henry Ford Health System, Housey Pharmaceutical Research Laboratories, McLaren Health Care – Oakland, MichBio, Oakland Community College, Oakland University, Oxus Inc., Priority Health, Rockwell Medical, St. John Providence Health System, St. Joseph Mercy Oakland and Stryker.
