Old Tappan, NJ, July 13, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Meperia, the first supply chain content enabler to bring predictive intelligence solutions to the healthcare market, today announced Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) has chosen to implement Meperia’s Strategic Sourcing (MSS) solution to improve efficiencies in both supply chain and revenue cycle management within their four-hospital health system.
This solution offers a single, cloud-based item master that will be in sync with a company’s contracts, distributors, manufacturers, and materials system, so their downstream clinical/EHR and revenue cycle systems are receiving clean information. This allows a company’s item master to become the source of truth for their organization. Contract compliance is enforced on the front end and charge codes are provided on demand.
“We are really excited to work with a forward-thinking organization like CAMC,” said Tom Frith, Meperia Executive Vice President. “Our solution will enable them to put controls and real-time visibility around their med-surg spend at the point of requisitioning and throughout the purchasing process – whether in the Supply Chain Department or in clinical areas – moving back-end processes to the front.”
Meperia Strategic Sourcing (MSS) is a comprehensive solution including The Library, Virtual Item Master, Formulary-Based Procurement, Functional Equivalence and Market In-Depth Benchmarking that helps drive sustainable savings for med-surg supplies by enhancing item master content. Through better item master content, MSS empowers users to make the right choice at the start of the procurement process. Real-time insights help monitor compliance savings goals.
