Inventory Advisor: Streamline your Healthcare Supply Chain and Optimize Cost-Savings

Gain efficiencies by using analytics for cost savings

Inventory Advisor

Control Costs and Capture Revenue

Healthcare inventory has a set of unique challenges, including ordering and delivering goods to providers and patients across departments and locations; managing external suppliers, insurance companies, and group purchasing organizations; and adhering to compliance statues. Each of these entities generates a data stream captured in automated inventory management systems, ERPs, EHRs, and other key data sources. Inventory Advisor assists Directors of Materials Management and VPs of Supply Chain Management by integrating all this data to track the metrics that really matter. This results in reduced costs and increased efficiency.
