The paper represents an exploratory study aimed at developing a theoretical framework that supports the elaboration of efficient collaborative purchasing (CP) strategies in the healthcare system. We identify prerequisites for developing an efficient CP approach in the healthcare system. A case study of Danish National Healthcare system is presented. The case indicates that trust and stakeholders’ commitment are key elements for successful CP initiatives. Moreover, simplifying procedures for collaborative sourcing and service management is crucial in sourcing of complex medical equipment.
