Hospitals in the Premier Inc. healthcare alliance will save approximately $3 million through an innovative new generic injectable auto-substitution program. Nearly 300 Premier member hospitals have already signed up for the auto-substitution program, which provides average savings of 5 percent off Premier's contract pricing. The program's cross-referenced substitution list links all equivalents, generic-to-generic, brand-to-generic and ampule-to-vial to an auto-substitution product. dBusinessNews (http://charlotte.dbusinessnews.com/shownews.php?newsid=69759&type_news=latest)
