Aperek Ellipse will give Adventist Health direct visibility to spend that has previously been impossible to track in the area of off contract and overpayment. - Don E. Boss, Corporate Director Supply Chain, Adventist Health.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
Adventist Health Hospitals recently signed an agreement to adopt Aperek Ellipse, a real-time, anytime spend visibility and analytics solution. The cloud-based solution will be deployed across 17 hospitals. It will analyze over $400 million dollars of supply and services spend. Adventist Health estimates saving up to $20 million initially. “Aperek Ellipse will give Adventist Health direct visibility to spend that has previously been impossible to track in the area of off contract and overpayment,” said Don E. Boss, Corporate Director Supply Chain, Adventist Health.
Aperek Ellipse allows hospitals to know with confidence:
- Areas they pay more than contract price
- Products not under contract that could be purchased at a lower price
- Total consolidated spend across multiple hospitals
- Savings opportunities based on purchase volumes
Without this comprehensive tool, many hospitals are ill equipped to use supply spend management to combat rising healthcare costs. With most organizations using disparate systems, it can be impossible to see and evaluate areas of overspending. Aperek Ellipse reveals purchasing and spend practices across disparate systems. This often results in saving millions in previously unknown areas.
Marc Winchester, Vice President of Sales, is eager to show the value of Aperek Ellipse to other health systems. With over 30 years of healthcare IT experience, he brings a depth of knowledge to take on the challenge of getting more hospitals to recognize this revolutionary solution. "The Aperek team can directly and positively impact the rising healthcare costs today. Supplies are the second highest cost to health systems and Aperek Ellipse directly enables users to drive these costs down. Users get real-time, anytime visibility to savings opportunities. They can eliminate costly spending habits and more confidently negotiate pricing," says Winchester.
In addition to the hiring of Marc Winchester, Aperek recently announced a renewed calling to reveal and drive-down clinical supply costs. This renewed focused is shown in the first Aperek video and the launch of a new product, Aperek Pulse.
