ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Amerinet, Inc., a leading national group purchasing organization today introduces its new Amerinet Choice® Energy Solutions program. Amerinet Choice Energy Solutions program offers innovative services and technical expertise to help healthcare facilities reduce energy consumption, resulting in cost savings and increased energy efficiency.
“We are excited about this new program and its ability to help participants see what adjustments they can make to reach their energy goals,” said Mike Reid, vice president of Amerinet Choice Energy Solutions. “Our members told us they needed objective and customized information that would help them make informed energy decisions, which guided the development of the Amerinet Choice Energy Solutions program.”
Participants can utilize various components of the program, such as consulting services for utility bill audits or ENERGY STAR benchmarking, equipment and device procurement services and commodity acquisition services, to see how changes in these areas can impact a facility’s energy expenditures.
Amerinet understands that healthcare executives can be overwhelmed by complying with today’s rules, guidelines and legislation requiring reductions in energy consumption. Coupled with the fact that direct energy costs can be three percent or more of a healthcare facility’s total operating expense, they don’t want to be forced into an immediate decision. Healthcare executives indicated they want resources to help them increase productivity and economic competitiveness by identifying and encouraging the implementation of cost-effective energy-efficient projects.
Reid said that Amerinet Choice Energy Solutions is a program designed to support healthcare executives in defining strategies, policies and goals in energy management and conservation. Participants will feel confident they are making environmentally responsible decisions that support cost reduction and create an energy efficient healthcare facility for their patients and staff.
“The Amerinet Choice Energy Solutions program demonstrated a high level of creativity in developing an electricity procurement strategy that will truly benefit Pleasant Ridge Manor in savings and potential revenue,” said Pat Shea, maintenance supervisor for Amerinet member Pleasant Ridge Manor in Erie, Pennsylvania.
As a leading national healthcare group purchasing organization, Amerinet collaborates with acute and alternate care providers to create and deliver unique solutions through performance improvement resources, guidance and ongoing support. With better product standardization and utilization, new financial tools beyond contracting and alliances that help lower costs, raise revenue and champion quality, Amerinet enriches healthcare delivery for its members and the communities they serve.
