Society for Healthcare Organizations Purchasing Professionals

About Us

The goals of Society for Healthcare Organization Procurement Professionals (SHOPP) are simple: to support the data-driven, ethical evaluation of products and solutions that achieve meaningful and financially responsible healthcare outcomes.


A purchasing agent’s objective is to secure the lowest possible pricing within narrowly defined management directives focused on cost control, with no standardized metrics to measure quality or define value. However, the procurement process is vast and has many moving parts that are interdisciplinary and cross-functional. Quality, expenses, reimbursement, and compliance all play critical roles in decision-making.

A Procurement Professional sees beyond short-term savings; they understand the interdisciplinary process involved in patient care and revenue-cycle management. Saving a dollar today that costs you two tomorrow is a bad deal. SHOPP empowers Procurement Professionals through education on statistical modeling, cost-benefit analysis, direct care time relief and data analysis.

SHOPP is not about negotiating talent or scale – our mission is to empower buyers with data-driven insights into how third-party products and services impact organizational outcomes and financial viability.
