Brightree and ResMed Announce Electronic Purchasing Agreement to Promote Streamlined Ordering Processes for HME Customers

Atlanta and San Diego (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

Brightree LLC, the leading provider of cloud-based clinical, billing and business management software solutions for the post-acute care industry, and ResMed, an innovator and pioneer in developing products for the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing and respiratory conditions, have signed an electronic data exchange agreement to help joint customers streamline business processes by ordering ResMed equipment directly from the Brightree® platform. With an integrated interface between the two systems, customers can dramatically reduce inventory-related costs, eliminate duplicate data entry, and maximize order accuracy.

“Providers are looking for every opportunity to reduce expenses and streamline business operations,” said Dave Cormack, President and CEO of Brightree LLC. “By making it easier for our customers to purchase ResMed equipment directly from within the Brightree billing platform, we are able to help them eliminate time wasted with the paper and phone-based purchasing processes they use today. Many of our customers supply their patients with ResMed equipment and supplies, so we believe this interface will generate significant savings for the majority of our customers.”

According to Jim Hollingshead, President of ResMed-Americas, “We know that this is a tough time for our HME customers, and we’re taking every measure to help them squeeze costs out of their businesses. Working with Brightree to create a superior online ordering and service resource for our HME customers can help them reduce the labor costs associated with administrative tasks. In fact, transactions executed on our ResMed Online Store typically take a quarter of the time that they would take manually. That’s a huge benefit to our HME customers.”

Because Brightree and the ResMed Online Store (ROS) are web-based platforms, the two systems can exchange provider, patient and product information that ensures access to real-time pricing and product availability information. By simplifying and automating the ordering process, the integrated system delivers significant value to providers, including:

  •     Streamlined order taking and fulfillment process by sending orders electronically instead of on paper or via phone-based ordering
  •     Reduced overpayments by having access to real-time pricing information directly within the ordering workflow in Brightree
  •     Reduced patient delivery delays by having access to real-time item availability information at the time of order
  •     Eliminating opportunity for incorrect order information by having the ResMed catalog and images appear directly within the Brightree interface.

How it Works

When a purchase order is created in the Brightree system, a transmission is sent from Brightree via a secure FTP connection to ROS. The electronic links between the systems will give the customer real-time access to product details, inventory availability and critical order information as well as the ability to submit a purchase order directly into ResMed’s internal ordering system. The links will also give customers the ability to track their purchases with order confirmations, shipping and delivery notifications, as well as electronic invoices all within the Brightree system.

Brightree and ResMed will demonstrate the solution in their respective booths at Medtrade Fall 2013 next week [Brightree booth #451, ResMed booth #1024]. For no additional cost, the solution will be generally available for joint customers later this year. For more information about the Brightree epurchasing solution, please visit
