Global Healthcare Exchange, LLC (GHX) announced the 61 healthcare provider and supplier organizations named to the GHX Millennium Club for achieving the highest levels of healthcare supply chain automation. These organizations generate at least one million automated transactions (including advanced order sets, among others) annually through the GHX Exchange, helping to improve the cost-quality equation in the healthcare industry. This year the number of organizations that qualitied for this recognition jumped 79 percent, with annual automated transactions going as high at 33 million for one supplier and 6 million for one provider.
The Millennium Club organizations were selected by GHX based on an evaluation of the supply chain automation levels in 2017 of more than 1,500 hospitals and suppliers in the U.S. and Canada currently connected to the GHX electronic trading exchange. In the third year of this program, GHX identified 36 provider organizations (up from 18 in 2016) and 25 supplier organizations (up from 16 in 2016) that scored highest in a range of automation categories during the 2017 calendar year. Thirteen provider and 13 supplier organizations earned the recognition for a third year.
The GHX Millennium Club members will be recognized at an Awards Luncheon during the 2018 GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit, May 7-9, 2018, in Las Vegas.
“A 79 percent increase in customers achieving such high levels of automated transaction volume is an important milestone for healthcare. This demonstrates that supply chain teams are serious about cutting costs from healthcare and automating business processes as an important strategy to solving the cost-quality equation,” said Tina Murphy, Chief Revenue Officer, at GHX. “We believe this significant jump in automation levels last year is due in part to suppliers and providers leveraging the new data, analytics, and community tools as part of our new CoreX platform.”
