Item ConneXion

Consistently accurate item master data means fewer exceptions

With fewer dollars and staff resources, it is critical that small hospitals streamline workflows, prevent revenue leakage and take advantage of all the savings opportunities afforded to them. All health systems and hospitals, regardless of size, are feeling the pressure to deliver higher quality patient care at a lower cost. With fewer resources at their disposal smaller hospitals face greater challenges in this area, but they also stand to gain some of the biggest benefits. Just gaining access to supply data that is more accurate, up-to-date and standardized can result in significant savings by reducing ordering errors and providing accurate, robust data to various constituents across the organization.
