Reducing Cost. Enhancing Healthcare. Advancing Rheumatology.

Welcome to Articularis Rheumatology Network

Articularis Rheumatology Network (ARN) Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) is committed to improving healthcare by uniting community-based rheumatology practices across the nation and providing innovative technology to lower healthcare costs for providers and patients.

Reducing Costs

Enhancing Healthcare

Advancing Rheumatology


ARN strives to help community-based rheumatology practices thrive in today’s healthcare environment. Together, we leverage insight to our specialty’s needs to deliver the quality care our patients deserve at a cost community-based practices can afford. Member practices will have the ability to purchase drugs at a lower cost by aggregating their spending with ours, and will additionally receive larger rebates.

Helping Members Do More

ARN’s insights are delivered across six key service lines:

Group Purchasing

ARN will negotiate the greatest cost-savings contracts and rebate programs on your behalf. Together, we leverage our purchasing power as an alliance of community-based rheumatology practices into significant cost-savings.


Practice-specific data and analytics, such as infusion inventory management and revenue cycle management support will improve financial operations and optimize efficiency.

ARN Pathway

An algorithmic pathway developed by Dr. Colin C. Edgerton that is seamlessly integrated into your practice’s EMR using McKesson’s Clearview Analytics software to provide suggestions for treatment to physicians following evidence-based guidelines as produced by the American College of Rheumatology.


Our collaborative approach to problem-solving has led to substantial improvements and innovations for community-based rheumatology practices.


Nationwide summits and clinically-based discussions with the opportunity to receive CME credits for providers as well as educational discussions for physicians, administrators, and staff focusing on best practice modeling and revenue management are offered regularly.


ARN understands the issues affecting providers and patients at community-based rheumatology practices. Our experts educate and influence policymakers by advocating on your behalf.

What Our Current Members Are Saying

“The benefits of size allows Articularis to afford a best-in-class management team. The result is increased quality of care, revenue, and physician/staff satisfaction. The benefits of negotiating with size speak for themselves– we achieve savings from insurance to medication pricing. This model is the future of Rheumatology.”

“It is a well-run company that allows rheumatologists to focus on patient care instead of administrative tasks. It helps rheumatologists get reimbursed appropriately for the services they provide. Because it is a large group, it is able to negotiate for better infusion medication prices as well.”

“Joining Articularis, as opposed to other larger health systems, is beneficial since Articularis understands the nuances of the specialty of rheumatology. Administrative burdens are reduced and quantity discounts are especially beneficial.”

95% of provider members report spending less time negotiating payer and supplier contracts since joining ARN.
