We find the best business partners for our members.
The Endorsed Business Partner Program connects IHA members with the best, most innovative companies in the marketplace. Our strategic Endorsed Business partnerships help us assist members in maximizing their operational efficiencies.
Companies with the IHA-endorsed logo have been fully vetted by IHA staff and selected by a committee of executives from Indiana hospitals and IHA board members. These business partners are expected to meet high quality standards and offer products or services that help health care facilities:
- Avoid costs
- Recover revenue
- Reduce operating and capital expenses
- Improve management and quality
- Increase productivity
- Develop staff resources
- Apply new strategies

HOW IHA SELECTS ENDORSED COMPANIES:
Identify need: IHA consults with health care executives, IHA leaders and advisory groups, staff and others.
Conduct market scan for potential candidates: IHA develops criteria, seeks referrals from hospitals, advisory groups, industry contacts and others, and routes RFP to potential candidates.
Evaluate lead candidates: IHA conducts on-site visits and evaluates business proposals, financials, marketing plans and customer referrals. IHA staff recommends finalists to the EBP Selection Committee for approval.
Award endorsement: Once a company passes our high standards for quality, service and integrity, the IHA Board is informed of the Selection Committee’s decision, agreements are finalized and the endorsement is initiated.
