Enhance Clinical Focus and Lower Your Costs with Preferred AccessSM

Owens & Minor's Preferred AccessSM is all about doing more with less. It helps healthcare organizations take advantage of forward-deployed inventory, find bulk-buy opportunities, and receive and aggregate deliveries. As a result, providers can devote more time and energy to patient care, while using less space, staff time, and money on managing supplies.

Preferred Access

  • Remove direct costs like freight, invoice processing, expiration, and product obsolescence
  • Reduce indirect costs of P.O. processing, delivery, storage space, and labor
  • Reap new savings through bulk purchase discounts and contract prices
