January 16, 2020

Alexandria, Va. – The Health Industry Distributors Association (HIDA) has selected Decision Resources Group (DRG) as the business partner to operate its industry data program beginning January 1, 2021.

This HIDA program aggregates distributor sales data for reporting market share and other market trends to the broader industry. After an extensive assessment process, DRG was selected by a subcommittee of the HIDA Board of Directors, which included participation and input by various distributor members of HIDA. DRG is a comprehensive provider of healthcare data to the life sciences sector in the United States and around the world, operating in 17 locations worldwide.

“We are very pleased to partner with DRG beginning in 2021,” said Matthew J. Rowan, HIDA President and CEO.

“DRG is excited to be selected to partner with HIDA to run this program beginning January 1, 2021,” said Ken McLaren, DRG Chief Strategy and Execution Officer. “The DRG MedTech team is looking forward to deploying our data and market trend solutions for distributors and manufacturers.”

The current partner, GHX Market Intelligence, will continue to operate the HIDA program in all respects as the exclusive HIDA-endorsed data provider through December 31, 2020. The HIDA program has sometimes been referred to as the GHX Program, and previously as HPIS.

“We are grateful to GHX for their many years of stewardship of this program,” Rowan continued. “We look forward to continuing to partner with GHX on other industry initiatives and collaborating on a smooth transition for the data users.”
