TractManager, Inc., the healthcare industry’s largest supplier of strategic sourcing and contract lifecycle management (CLM) solutions, has taken a significant equity position in BidMed, a market leader in the acquisition and disposition of healthcare equipment on the secondary market.

Whether buyers or sellers, our clients have an efficient way to manage their capital lifecycle with BidMed.”
