Frequently Asked Questions

SHOPP is a society created by Purchasing Professionals to enhance education and redefine relationships between clinical and financial leadership.

SHOPP was created to fill a long and ignored void in the industry. Purchasers across the country felt very fragmented in their decision making and were often left in the middle of a tug-a-war between clinical and financial staff. Purchasers knew there was more to the job than just cost.

It means looking at purchasing in a more holistic way. This includes price, quality of care, reimbursement, utilization management and compliance to make the most educated decision and transform purchasing to procurement.

SHOPP is gathering experts in the industry to provide educational services that can be accessed in one place.

SHOPP has an annual membership fee of $995.00 per applicant. We are currently running an early bird special of 20% off. We want to make SHOPP as affordable as possible and accessible to all in the procurement process to anyone who is managing expenses. From administrators to maintenance, clinical directors to food service and every department in between, all are welcome.

Included in the membership is access to our Symposium which takes place in Las Vegas May 5th-7th in addition to educational services, webinars, forums, newsletters and access to mentors and advisors. For more information on membership visit and click the membership tab.

Education! Geared towards the procurement process.

All vendors need to be approved educators in order to be a sponsor at the symposium. Vendors need to fill out an application and identify what educational value they provide to the procurement process. Our education agenda will be intimate and discussion-based as well as break out round table discussions and much more.
