What if procurement could also impact patient outcomes?

Gore information for health care providers that are involved in the purchasing of medical devices

High-quality vascular, cardiac, general surgery devices

Health care providers face the challenge of delivering high-quality care and improving patient outcomes while reducing costs and becoming more efficient. The pressure on purchasing organizations is now more significant than ever before in the wake of the pandemic.

As a materials science company, Gore has a legacy built on innovation, developing high-quality products that improve patients' lives. But at Gore, we are about more than just products designed to improve patient outcomes. We believe in working in partnership with purchasers and the medical team. Our value-based services help both purchasers and physicians achieve medical and economic objectives.

Medical devices designed to improve patient outcomes

Our medical devices are designed to help physicians improve patient outcomes. The GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis with ACTIVE CONTROL System is just one example: It is the only device with angulation control. It provides a lower-risk alternative to open surgery, offering the benefits of less invasive repair to more abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients.1

Designed to exclude aneurysm from circulation and avoid rupture

The GORE® EXCLUDER® Device family has consistently delivered low rates of reintervention for proven, durable value.*

Enhanced device positioning: Repositionable to allow optimal placement and aneurysm seal
Most studied worldwide: The most studied EVAR device† with up to 20 years of follow-up data2, 3, 4, 5
Long-term durability: Freedom from device-related reintervention through five-year follow-up‡

Value-based procurement: Shifting focus from costs to value creation and patient outcomes

Prioritizing purchase costs over process costs, purchasing price over delivery reliability, and low product costs over sustainability has dominated procurement for a long time. It's time for a paradigm shift that helps health care providers improve patient outcomes while operating economically. The key to this shift is value-based procurement.

GORE PROPATEN Vascular GraftAn example of how our medical devices can help create medical and economical value:

The GORE® PROPATEN® Vascular Graft is an artificial graft for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) patients. 33% of patients with critical limb ischemia need a major amputation within one year of diagnosis.6 There is a higher risk of death after amputation.7, § The long-term care costs after an amputation are significant; for example, 88,400€ per patient in Germany (2013).8

GORE® PROPATEN® Vascular Grafts could reduce amputations by 28% and could significantly decrease the need for reinterventions when compared to standard ePTFE grafts. This could lead to better patient outcomes, allowing health care providers to focus on other patients, potentially saving up to 37% in health care costs.9

28% Fewer amputations: Three years after implantation9
Save resources: Doctors and nurses can focus on other patients due to fewer reinterventions9
More efficiency: 37% health care costs potentially saved9
