with Richard comes Close question Canaccord from next Genuity. Your

Susan DeVore

Richard. Hi,

Richard Close

morning. good Yes, Yes. company Thank you this time. the has as during well that for done all

exit I That margin for a and the obviously, number your the major curious, But hit see do exit and And how difficulties becoming health systems. some – you here I'm this, improvement do we Mike, objectives? federal performance three this, health cost revenue wanted on customers although efficient financial coming. how these have more Obviously, we to we as moving of that's funding adoption. tech was objectives. unknown, systems your thoughts forward there's from So on

Mike Alkire


A things. question, couple great So Richard. of

question, business the happening, what's to data understand a and impacts model truly have the is impact the costs. we analytics have on Lisa's almost to we the to changing, and on if ability First, the see revenue

our And a implications services our well been So world. weeks, from standpoint. obviously, models as to of help of understand business them over the for building healthcare actually help standpoint them the models to better building post-COVID-XX last an systems few a we've then technology as advisory sort

things understanding of couple be critical. a they're looking that think the do. is surveillance So prevalence to One, a if think, this disease, early of I to think I going that really I of really, there's

facility, quickly. the so the recognize make they've into to that patient system if and got got can sure that very symptoms appropriate the they very, comes it surveillance the we've has So

will working think I with want two, different they're analytics, do and of for facilities that it keep have in so their inform procedures create, they as other can patients a strategic about a thinking of to the as I Number they one. guess, their and for to to number word, areas, surges those kinds cohort they of better those communities the electric that's lack things. So facilities allow care that decisions open

as I from vis-à-vis And standpoint the think huge to think really, acceleration our what's post-COVID. to markets. revenue their then be there's as on critical some surveillance obviously the that Health work happening opportunity, we closely going analytics this and with the the really Cares initiative, So And they it's a with have Contigo focus Act employers cost. obviously, and then is well in where to a more funding opportunities getting access

Richard Close

And acquisition Okay. does you customers announced have that many a on? follow-up. HDP the How

Mike Alkire

in somewhere it's – probably That's the teens.

a of approximately working to they're got, then very, working for from as standpoint, with, other to standpoint. centers they're those systems do large don't which very in with think XX is that a healthcare these employers healthcare systems opportunity they've So as TPA we participate a And I obviously a of centers. know, excellence, our from employers well TPA real number

is Rhyee with Charles question Cowen. from next Your

Susan DeVore

there? Hi, you Charles. are Charles,

Charles Rhyee

had sorry, my mute yes, Oh, Yes. on.

that, a don't some we the can in coasts? Is south on had are maybe you of of the an sense and us to states reopen. sort interior? you we're sort sense think looks clearly, about think like maybe a geographic of start going And as help Just it before, on question. you've about and be this mix us more of recall it because we When of Midwest. working rough your we can you if recovery there. the sort concentrated? reopen stages. Is Maybe I geographically coming And forward, the numbers you a maybe where in to can It obviously, if give customers, given more give we us

Susan DeVore

of looked if at you X,XXX we our the have map So members. members,

So sites. we have hospitals, health systems alternate and XXX,XXX

country. the literally So we all are over

We have concentration. very Coast East a significant

We Coast significant have West a and central. also

essentially that to largest the are our the share markets, one is elective come market we have getting you gradually all opened and we're the of IDNs the big So hospitals everywhere. of that do will I and of back probably in up. first things And think on multistate. states I to in tell focus access back that back come procedures those

And elective of of them June, now are across a The what by back we're the We health would members actually, survey, of question of did every June. and their your think asked question them running I all and get our almost planning in in literally in guess you say percentage of the the just up for is surgeries planning. volume our will country. the their in end I right prior to and to be that such market. doing of systems July. do levels to May, normal try And So

intent. whether it Now think make the don't know, but they'll or I not, we that's

it. about thinking we're how that's So

Charles Rhyee

would point, the ahead in supplies your like get it it. be some a not. and Is of terms think that. appreciate pace I whether hospitals of And if But purchasing we of can to just, lot got about there And I that you or going? recovery procedure we volumes there figured conversion? not they before starts that would going? until Or orders, something that but is something where see the make really maybe – the procedures in is is after necessarily would activity result that making really something

Susan DeVore

So think it's I both.

up while they that be will the are that a for elective think surgeries. up COVID back And on lost actually PPE additional and with bigger ramp for try pressure have catch what the So to surgery. is patients such comes ramping I to say there continuing they planning also would as they

our sourcing in see through direct might the So think of that, that happen that of some and anticipation forward buys, you'll that. I company

on fees for because to along administrative fees the demand, understand. a planning particularly that and more of systems, with and models electric think a a of will procedures. the of for ramp going-forward up these surges a think with from procedures, be away little estimating go electric basis, the and more I the where administrative of will they're that advanced inventory just-in-time I expecting accrual do take health I think are there all model up of time COVID, additional bit the they that ramp movement

Charles Rhyee

at helpful. away just just-in-time That's built they're there, hand that follow-up Okay. just pattern? if just from still on you right Was is Maybe purchasing more some model you Or but to is maybe that Susan, does all? purchasing, affect inventory? move really to have your a have going said what it inventory supply regular excess

Susan DeVore


cost inventory is of days on hand. at to I They think the don't in. time, want pressure, it'll – in the need they're our put assessment they've they'll have been numbers going to be that have situation back same bigger to

more will think will – there and take And time. will be there gradually so be it over stockpiling done I

or that – be epidemic – will increased pandemic. gloves, of will needed those sense in particularly increased products PPE, kind actually our kind any gowns, there of almost is so need the be for, And basic any commodity masks,

ramp be our normal more patterns buying there. And patterns of on of it and some that do go there then that. to and level so will up they from hand, then And they the sense hands that may will benefit on replenishment as is – inventory

Charles Rhyee

so you I it. Thank appreciate much. Great.

Susan DeVore

with is Your Eric Percher Nephron next Research. from question

Susan DeVore

Eric. Hi,

Eric Percher

for Mike, Good you. Thank you your question and efforts. thanks morning. for a

situation or You've I supply quite to extend And we add time. years. come chain of a the I this And over may efforts. dependency talked that be imagine through changes today, know we're XX-year could effort. have that going really want X- about short-term the But some if covered we've even resiliency, from for the to some of some

the need to operational And Is to about efforts and or So my between trade-off on this it to be pressure lead in does question has is, it input cost? be to resilience term? that is cost upward implemented right that terms of longer expected? really there over think a

Mike Alkire


this me sort that me describing national X.X the this, from of way – build-out infrastructure we've heard economy say let but is So you've a just been Eric, standpoint.

out So of right? the This the about a X.X was ago. notion of sort How are of infrastructure of domestically? X.X. out think if think working the building pharmaceuticals, And manufacturing just number you this years get economy roads to it, you and building whole back infrastructure is

longer erythromycin longer month those things supplements this. ago they the we they vitamin what and India, about of of middle a in going basically you – were and saw incredibly important So no in and said no were to some ship kinds

Point also we've pharmaceutical that outside other weeks, finished last into sort of really or only a we, is, lot ingredients six of and country U.S., sparked rightfully a products. all it have think so, five product. for over I of manufacturing that active of understanding been concerns, dependence, goods of on the but this really lot that the of ingredients not origin these incredible these go critical got the finished

those are short produced there's some overseas. future going that either in needed that products either epidemics, in or domestically some highlighting Those products ensuring we're cases to be resiliency in where nearshore supply or the can chain that and be are supply in

So for significant materials manufactured, is product see for push, I term finished as obviously, same to PPE, long the the and a well. being just think you're regard where the going not that. but short, both middle raw In

we're materials was, in things most the for raw of for major manufacturing part, is out obviously, One Southeast facilities five in finding ISO the the concentrated gowns Asia.

here, the There but domestically, was some system. the needs of enough meet not obviously, to

it's So as well. going more answer system. redundancy, to To that you're more are and add, raw around system, think produced those to you identifying obviously, being your where materials cost, I as with any add resiliency question costs

we're going And it's so to have do we're to – not efficiently. – these but quite things frankly,

as thinking we're doing have obviously is that think production leverages out, we creating what a be needs more model nearshore products about well. going So that of to built to the are domestic

maybe in we options have low-cost my lower that rate. markets still So have leverage prepared cost that here then are as a obviously, some nearshore. leveraging And that remarks, on so we'll said I blended countries

moving but I it's from of one domestic, cost talked it's across total about. to obviously, Southeast areas, Asia So not, those spread really structure three just

Baird. question next is Coldwell Your from with Eric

Susan DeVore

Hi, Eric.

Eric Coldwell

Hi. have Thanks morning. questions. two I Good guys. Thanks. Hi.

First for should Craig. this be one Susan, easy. for second Susan,

Act or I a the no regulatory or that Premier? directly in answer but other anything think largely impacts there either or Cares stimulus is a change is the no,

Susan DeVore

know Craig, additional There's Premier. to give a I directly Eric, that from don't impacts highlights. perspective not much, financial you if want any

Craig McKasson

operating net of that we've being incorporated. the subsidiaries that from result able relative But get, certain loss to take to standpoint income Eric, were reviewed will nothing carry tax a advantage mean provisions. stimulus as of are a Premier. There benefits the that's I Yes. provisions some back and

Susan DeVore


Eric Coldwell

That's I thought. what

Okay. just And my Craig, directly. then, you. follow-up I'll ask for

obviously, you're remind you you quarter business, admin fees. revenue? is aggregated the us perhaps margin over couple sourcing how matter. a of parse us both if see trended, a finally, Could could for especially to has in on then And that But the last could us you you're light gross buys in sense has moment, operating volume shining fourth versus the And remind business direct what or out sourcing. how at modeling slowdown, Your trended margin give given – doesn't if quarters? going either

Craig McKasson

Yes. Yes.

aggregated forward it's for of would to the hard like you me given on QX dependent buys. these an unfortunately, uncertainty, give So somewhat some really accurate ask it because projection is

and provide the sort And exceed, end much we and we in We'll we how of the that of see but fourth in of did demand some why range on the could upper what depend some. actually uptake be see balance that's of PPE quarter. it so the will through

So sourcing the a does ramp. ongoing of majority aggregated seen products, commodity business use purchases, have PremierPro we of direct these but continue to our be not the

that did we to the is you $XX million. third advanced of been We quarter. another in tell can I What $XX deployed has deploy about through million product pushing fourth capital the that in quarter, by

a million really a tremendous From that the we had look have on opportunities, success and continue put out moving been year about of the improvements in give those over with past more forward, to needed in actually, $XX we'll get about to specific having margins, operational of couple that. order So put can't in but product QX be capital of that. some that business, to of projection quarters, for about talked we ago standpoint place

sourcing business. continuing direct in And to so actually had the improve seen margins

seen compression result primarily of I about impact a to the here. think as think little margins we'll decision in this the over in I QX, remarks. to a prepared talked my of see due transportation I bit our do COVID-XX, expedite in product we've

I not which transportation It normal margins liner, our stuff to So course, an the do get a vehicles that do. other expensive. ocean QX as permanent used it think to were right is opposed expedited from lower we more business. there was will putting long-term but kind direct more sourcing thing to That's of here see on quickly, solution, in the

Eric Coldwell
