TO ALL  CKAPhA GPO (Group Purchasing Organization) MEMBERS

 

협회 GPO Member들에게 알려드립니다. (English Translation below)

 

지난2017 12월에 전례없는 획기적인Group Purchasing 조건으로  도매상과 contract 체결하였지만  계약의 전제조건(Requirements)이었던Group 전체의 GCR 10%  훨씬 못미친 결과로 인해, 부득이 지난 2018 8월부터 새로운COG (Cost of Goods) 의한 NEW CONTRACT 받아드릴  밖에 없게 되었습니다 

 

그동안 여러 경로로  문제점(Low GCR) 시정해보려 노력하였지만  약국들의 개인행동 (:3 도매상이용)으로인하여내년(2020-2021) 새로운 계약 갱신시  좋은 조건을 기대할  없는 상황에 이르렀습니다.

 

해서 부득이 지난 1월31 Group Purchasing Committee Meeting 소집하고 아래와 같은 조치를 취하기로 결정되었음에회원들에게 알려드리오니  주지해주시길 바랍니다.

 

지난 3,4분기를 기준하여:

1.    아래의 약국은  협회의 Redistribution Check 받을  없습니다 (2018년에 이미 결정된 사항)

 

a.     아직까지  도매상(McKesson AND Cardinal) 사용하는 약국  

b.     GPR(Generic Purchase Rate ) <80% 미만인 약국

 

2.     아래의 약국은  협회의 Redistribution Check외에 어떤 다른 형태의 Monetary benefit (예: 달력주문, 무료 백신 캠페인 보조, CPhA membership 보조 등등…) 받을  없습니다 (2019년에 새로 추가된 사항)

a.     협회에서 지정한  도매상(Cardinal or McKesson) 이외 3도매상(ABC and/or HD Smith) 이용하는 약국

 

위의 결정사항은 올해 201921일부터  시행되는 모든 협회행사에 적용됨을 알려드리면서우리 모두의 사업에 모두의 공동이익을 위해 모든 회원님들의 적극적인 협조와 이해를 부탁드립니다.

 

아울러 하시는 모든 사업에 건승을 빕니다.

 

감사합니다.

TO ALL  CKAPhA GPO (Group Purchasing Organization) MEMBERS

 

Dear CKAPhA GPO Members:

Despite the successful negotiations with two wholesalers in December 2017, we had to amend our contracts with both vendors in 2018 due to poor GCR compliance & GPR compliance.

CKAPhA Group Purchasing Committee(GPC) tried over the past year with various efforts to improve the GCR, but we identified several pharmacies in very poor compliance, resulting in the lower score for all pharmacies.

This will weaken our bargaining position for the next 2 year (2020-2021), which will begin the latter part of this year (2019).

All GPC members met on January 31st, 2019 and decided to enforce the following:

Based on the 2018 3rd and 4th quarter purchase record,

1. The following pharmacies are not eligible for the CKAPhA admin fee redistribution check (already enforced since 2018)

a. If your pharmacy uses both vendors (McKesson AND Cardinal) 

b. If your GPR (Generic Purchase Rate) is less than 80%

 

2. The following pharmacies are not eligible for any other monetary benefits other than redistribution check - for example, calendar, free vaccine campaign participation, CPhA membership discount, etc (Newly enforced in 2019)

a. If your pharmacy uses wholesalers other than Cardinal or McKesson as a primary or sencondary vendor (ABC and/or HD Smith) 

The above will be enforced starting February 1st, 2019.

Please understand that those are ways to keep all of us strong to have a better bargaining position for 2020-2021.

 

Best Regards,

Martin Kim

CKAPhA GPC Chairman

President-Elect 2020-2021
