COMING SOON!! We are pleased to announce that later this month, an updated version of the PPO website will be launched. The functionality of the site will be very similar to the existing one, with a few changes and additions, that will hopefully make searching and accessing PPOs just as, if not easier, for users. Here is a sneak peek at the site:

Stay tuned for more information, and the official launch date of the site.

These, and all PPOs, may be found on the RQHR intranet PPO site: http://rqhweb/xpreprintedorders/ppohome.aspx

Please feel free to contact myself if you are unable to find a PPO or are looking for guidance in developing a PPO.
