Bergen Brunswig/Baxter Healthcare: Baylor Health Care System selects Bergen and Baxter as its partners in a medical products distribution alliance to increase the suppliers' involvement in BHCS materials management and provide "one-stop shopping" for products "throughout the BHCS continuum of care," Bergen announces May 18. Under the arrangement, Bergen "will serve as the logistics coordinator," using its information system to manage the electronic catalog for all suppliers and process all orders. BHCS will then decide whether Baxter or one of the Bergen companies (Bergen Brunswig Drug Company, Alternate Site Distributors, or med/surg supplier Durr Medical) is the appropriate supplier. The agreement also involves "strategic manufacturers" including 3M, Abbott, and DeRoyal Industries. Baxter's Darnell Martin, group vice president of business process innovation, says that Baxter "will develop processes to ensure equal opportunity and access to BHCS for all manufacturers"...
