Shrewsbury, NJ (PRWEB) June 25, 2004
VIE Healthcare announced today that Barnert Hospital has signed an agreement to implement VIE HealthcareÂs proprietary telecommunications analysis and recovery services to identify overcharges and to reduce monthly telecommunications costs. VIE Healthcare has the information, tools, processes and people in place to help drive down technology costs and provide a better way to manage costs.
In addition, VIE Healthcare will also be providing Barnert Hospital with a GPO audit. This detailed Group Purchasing Audit will examine the discounts provided by the vendors and compare line item pricing against the portfolio of current GPO contracts. Immediate savings will be achieved by correctly aligning prices with the GPO discounts available and will identify vendors that have not been adhering to their GPO or IDN contract and pursue refunds.
"We are honored to be chosen by Barnert Hospital to assist them in their expense reduction efforts," said Lisa Miller, President of VIE Healthcare.
The VIE Healthcare Telecommunications and GPO Analysts are specialists in health care and will provide the expertise needed in order to reduce costs, without effecting quality, and in most cases, identify and recover lost revenues. "The best part of my job is calling a client and saying 'you will be receiving a credit or a refund check from XYZ Company'", says Miller. "We work very hard on behalf of our clients because we understand the unique challenges that face health care organizations and the need to reduce costs while maintaining quality and is vital to an organization", says Miller.
VIE Healthcare takes pride in looking at areas for expense reduction that typically gets overlooked; "we never look at salary or staff reductions," says Miller. VIE Healthcare has proprietary approaches and methods which offers health care organizations substantial savings and refunds that will increase revenue, "we strongly believe in the value of the employee" and VIE Healthcare also offers "Healthcare Idea Workshops" which teaches employees creativity to harness their ideas for expense reduction and overall improvement.
Health care organizations face many challenges; however there are many innovative solutions that can respond back to these challenges. For more information on VIE HealthcareÂs programs and workshops, please visit: http://www.viehealthcare.com .
