GHX Reveals Roadmap to Stronger Healthcare Community at GHX Healthcare Supply Chain Summit
Date:5/8/2012

o invest, and build both strength and capacity around our backbone so that it scales with the demands of your business," Smith told the attendees. "In fact, we're forecasting that our volume is going to double, if not triple."

Smith talked about a variety of new products announced for the Summit included a new eInvoicing solution and a provider analytics and reporting solution called Provider Intelligence, as well as enhancements to the company's Registration Center and Procurement solutions. Chief among the technology announcements was additional information about the new GHX Implantable Device Supply Chain.

"At GHX, one of our key goals is to make these extremely complex processes – many of which take place today through systems that don't connect to each other and departments inside a single organization that aren't yet working together – and make them simple," said Smith. "The way I think about this, is that everything we've done historically to help you better manage spend in med-surg now translates to a new opportunity to help you reduce costs in implantables."

According to Martin Payne, vice president, device and implant segment, the culprit in the management of implantable devices is a process that is complex and manual. The process is often run independently from the hospital and the manufacturer, each managing implantable devices separate from the other. "So it's more complex, its manual, and they aren't working together to solve the problem," Payne said.

"To tackle the problem, what we have to get to is a platform that allows you to collaborate in a way that's frictionless. It requires one integration point where you're talking the same language in terms of data and can automate the process and adopt the solution in rapid fashion while still using your own systems to automate individual work flows. It's the connectivity piece that GHX creates that really brings the benefit to the industry," said Payne.
