2019 Winner: Northwestern Medicine

2019 - Northwestern Medicine
  • Recognizing the cost and operational benefits that come with transitioning from paper checks to supplier e-payments, Northwestern Medicine has been a champion for growing the adoption of the GHX ePay solution among its supplier partners. This work in turn has benefitted other provider organizations that transact with these same suppliers.

  • Since implementing ePay in April 2019, Northwestern Medicine team has worked with GHX to onboard an additional 30 suppliers to the ePay program. To increase compliance, the team has regular calls with suppliers to help resolve issues they encounter.

  • Through this work, Northwestern Medicine has increased its ePay supplier compliance rate from 26 percent in April 2019, up to 88 percent in December 2019.
