Because purchased services account for approximately 40% of a health system’s supply chain costs, it becomes more important than ever to have the right data needed to uncover additional savings opportunities, and Medpricer Compare™ helps them to do that.
(PRWEB) March 09, 2016
Medpricer, healthcare’s leading cost management platform for purchased services, announces the debut of its new benchmarking product Medpricer Compare™, which provides healthcare systems with accurate category benchmarks for purchased services enabling them to identify realistic savings opportunities.
Medpricer Compare™ is a customized assessment that compares what a health system is spending in chosen categories against Medpricer’s $14 billion sourcing benchmark database based entirely on competitive bids. This information is adjusted for unique purchased services factors such as geography, volume, service level, and category specific requirements. In addition, Medpricer’s deep category expertise is applied to produce a final report that provides a healthcare system with a comparison of what it should be paying against its current contracted rates.
“Healthcare systems really struggle with obtaining accurate benchmarking information for the services they purchase and our Medpricer assessment makes it easy for them to get reliable data based on competitive bidding results,” said Chris Gormley, CEO of Medpricer. “This arms them with the visibility they need to achieve competitive rates.”
Different than other benchmark solutions geared more towards medical-surgical and commodity products, Medpricer’s database is based on purchased services competitive bids and evaluates all potential cost drivers to determine true competitive rates. It is built from sourcing over $2.7 billion with more than 400 national and local suppliers to provide the most accurate cost comparison and realistic savings opportunities.
“The free market is the ultimate benchmarking source,” adds Gormley. “We base our benchmark data on the prices, terms, and quality standards purchased services suppliers offer in a competitive bid for committed business and this is the kind of data healthcare systems can leverage to better manage their budgets. Because purchased services account for approximately 40% of a health system’s supply chain costs, it becomes more important than ever to have the right data to uncover additional savings opportunities, and Medpricer Compare™ helps them to do that.”
