Welcome to the HSCA website, which has been redesigned to help you access information and resources pertinent to GPOs and the healthcare supply chain. Sign in to the members-only section to create a dynamic member profile, collaborate on projects, share your ideas and expertise – and, most importantly – connect with your fellow members.
We will continue to release additional features/content and make improvements and upgrades as needed.
How to Manage Your Profile
Your profile is one of the most important resources on the HSCA website. It is your space to showcase your skills and experience to other members and the public. You may sign into the members’-only section of the website in the top right corner of any page on the site. You have control of how much information you wish to make available to others, and how accessible you would like your information to be. Your profile settings include: ·
Profile Home: How your personal profile appears to registered site users (the HSCA member community). Your profile is NOT visible to the public, only registered members, and you can limit how much informations is visible even to them.
Manage Profile: Update all parts of your profile and hide certain data fields (e.g., e-mail address, work address, and personal information) by clearing the check box next to the data field. This option is available under "My Profile" on the right hand side of the home page when you log in.
