What Makes The Exchange Efficient
The healthcare equipment market is notoriously inefficient. Healthcare experts from LEK Consulting summed up this inefficiency best during a past educational broadcast with OpenMarkets:
For both providers and suppliers, a lack of efficiency, transparency and insight were recurring themes in the discussion of “pain” points.
Provider challenges… include internal inefficiencies, limited availability of data and resources and a lengthy, complicated purchase process were among the challenges. Supplier challenges were similar, but through a different lens. They focused on high sales costs, a limited access to key decision-makers and a lack of visibility or insights into provider needs.
Working in a transparent, online platform cuts through much of this inefficiency according to Todd DeRoo, AVP of Supply Chain at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Francis Health System:
“OpenMarkets has solved for the arduous research, shopping, and quoting tasks that plague our clinical and supply teams in the form of time and money. With OpenMarkets software, the hospital has product information at its fingertips and our once paper-based budgeting process is simple and efficient. I would encourage all equipment suppliers to list their products on OpenMarkets.”
