Improve Hospital and Health System Purchasing & Materials Management with Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Hospital and health system purchasing and materials management departments are integral to successful patient care. They support an array of staff and facility needs to accomplish the healthcare mission of delivering advanced patient care at lower cost.  Pharmaceuticals, medical devices, capital equipment, IT / computers, furnishings, cleaning / maintenance supplies, food and beverage, facility fixtures and a variety of other items / services have to be carefully managed.  Robotic process automation (RPA) is a pivotal solution to economically accelerate, organize and execute the exchange of data involving:

  • Multiple facilities / locations, units, floors and departments / medical specialties
  • An array of products, supplies, materials, equipment and services
  • Numerous manufacturers, GPOs, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers and other entities
  • Ongoing pricing, inventory and other updates processed 24/7, 365 days a year
  • Direct clinical and financial impact across organizations

This whitepaper is a purchasing and materials management framework based on key internal / external stakeholders, clinical / financial / operational resources and how RPA can be successfully applied to improve productivity and reduce costs.
