PartsSource Introduces Visual Analytics and Advanced Formulary Controls

Sponsored by Businesswire

the only fully-integrated, supply chain procurement and advanced
logistics platform has expanded analytics and formularies for technology
management and clinical engineering teams through the release of new
PartsSource enterprise benefits.

Financial challenges have long ranked No. 1 on the list of hospital
CEOs’ top concerns, according to the American College of Healthcare
Executives. With reimbursement for medical services trending steadily
downward, hospitals are focused on managing the rising cost of staff and
supplies. Yet few health systems have tackled one of the most critical
means of getting costs under control—eliminating variation in supply
chain parts and services across all of their facilities.

PartsSource enterprise customers now can address these challenges with
visual analytic and advanced formulary controls. As a result, members of
the PartsSource community will be further equipped to ensure clinical
availability and lower costs.

“PartsSource’s new visual analytics tool will be very valuable for us to
dig in and better understand the details of our spend and identify
additional cost savings for the organization,” said Tami A. Waalen,
Operations Manager, Clinical Engineering Services at Allina Health. “I’m
excited to access the analytics online at any time and share the data
with leadership to show our internal customers the savings.”

The new benefits for the thousands of hospitals in the PartsSource
enterprise community include:

Visual Analytics

PartsSource equips CE and HTM teams with comprehensive, accurate and
robust information at the point of decision, helping reduce costs. With
the visual analytics, enterprise customers can:

    manufacturer and product type
  • Access parts and services by facility and location, including
    technician and product condition
  • Drill down into cost savings opportunities across the organization and
    consistently review quality outcomes

Formulary Controls

Using formulary controls, PartsSource customers now can standardize
their organization’s purchases to improve quality, decrease costs and
promote purchasing consistency across technicians, and hospitals.
Through PartsSource formulary controls, customers can:
