GHX Launches New Item ConneXion Content Management Solution for Small Healthcare Providers

New self-service, web-based item catalog application keeps supply chain data up to date and synchronized to help reduce transactions errors and drive down healthcare costs
Louisville, CO — Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Global Healthcare Exchange, LLC (GHX) today announced Item ConneXion, a new content management solution specifically for small hospitals, giving these provider organizations a way to create and maintain consistently accurate item master data. Item ConneXion joins the company’s NuVia® application in the GHX content management portfolio of healthcare supply chain solutions designed to increase transaction accuracy and reduce the cost of healthcare.

Item ConneXion is for the small healthcare organization without a master data management (MDM) team or infrastructure and is designed to be up-and-running quickly, requiring no integration and a rapid implementation process. It is a self-service, web-based item catalog application that provides these hospitals with an on-demand solution for access to GHX’s proprietary item catalog, AllSource Prime. It also allows healthcare systems to maintain an accurate item master supporting reduced exceptions and improving efficiency for end-users of supply chain data.

“Small hospitals often have fewer resources but need access to solutions that have long been available to larger healthcare systems, especially as the challenge of reducing costs remains one of the top priorities of all healthcare providers. Item ConneXion helps these small hospitals take the first steps toward streamlining workflows, reducing revenue leakage and taking advantage of the savings opportunities afforded to them by an automated solution,” said Chris Luoma, vice president, Product Management, GHX. “Accurate and synchronized supply chain data is the key for lean organizations to drive down costs. Providing such a solution to those provider organizations serving small or niche markets is something we at GHX are committed to doing.”

Item ConneXion also includes description management functionality that allows hospitals to dynamically create and maintain multiple descriptions, including customization of abbreviations and attribute order, as well as improve consistency in descriptions across not only the supply chain but all downstream systems where those items may be used.

The new Item ConneXion content management solution is available now. To contact a GHX sales representative for more information, email
