“Our strong third-quarter results were driven by continued growth in the demand for Premier products and services across our Supply Chain Services and Performance Services businesses,” said Susan DeVore, president and chief executive officer. “We are building a successful track record of financial performance based on our role as a trusted partner with solutions that enable healthcare providers to comprehensively reduce costs, improve quality and safety and prepare for the rapidly approaching population health management environment.

“In the third quarter, double-digit revenue growth in our Supply Chain Services business was fueled by continued strength in our group purchasing organization and from our direct sourcing and specialty pharmacy businesses,” DeVore said. “Performance Services also produced double digit revenue growth, driven primarily by strong contributions from PremierConnect® SaaS-based subscriptions and renewals as well as advisory services.”
