June 6, 2023 - Evansville, IN – Phoenix, Arizona-based Banner Health has adopted Curvo clinical spend management solutions to identify savings opportunities, improve contract visibility and tracking, and deliver quick insights and presentations.
Banner Health recently signed a multi-year deal that includes Curvo Data Enrichment and Curvo Analytics Suite solutions via the Curvo Platform.
“It’s exciting to watch Banner Health drive strategic change in the clinical supply chain,” said Curvo CEO and Co-Founder Andy Perry. “Data and technology are rapidly transforming this important function for the betterment of the overall healthcare organization.”
Banner Health Goals: Data-Driven Performance and Clinical Spend Reduction

The award-winning Banner Health Supply Chain team envisions using benchmarking data and actionable analytics for decision making, bid and contract support, and digital supplier engagement.
Clinical spend reductions are expected as a result of:
