Demands on health systems’ Information Technology (IT) teams continue to grow exponentially. ERP and EMR implementations, integrations accompanying mergers and acquisitions, and securing an ever-expanding digital footprint are just a few of the challenges being faced by these teams - all while keeping the environment secure and running smoothly. Over time, these demands have forced many health systems to focus on ensuring coverage vs. optimization, ultimately leaving significant dollars on the table.
SpendMend partners with our clients to help optimize their IT environment. Our comprehensive lifecycle approach ensures that hospitals have the right structure and get the right technology with improved agreements, meaningful SLAs, preferred pricing, and optimized licensing and utilization schemas. Our work saves hospitals, on average, 8%-15% of their IT budget.
Our comprehensive lifecycle approach separates vendors and products into discreet categories including (but not limited to):
We’ve spent 27 years dedicated to the healthcare industry and, in that time, we’ve learned firsthand that every health system and healthcare organization is different.
Let SpendMend apply our in-depth industry knowledge to customize an approach that will
help to optimize your IT costs while freeing your team up to concentrate on
what matters most – providing exceptional patient care.
SpendMend’s innovative process appears to leave no stone unturned and has identified and recovered significant dollars.
The SpendMend Client Portal allows me to review claims whenever I want – 24 hours a day – on my schedule; and without receiving stacks of paper, which makes the distance between our offices no problem
Not only did failures in a previous audit firm’s process result in lower recovery, but also some of the ‘claimed’ recovery dollars had to be paid back to vendors due to rejections. SpendMend has worked with vendors to ensure accurate, valid, approved claims; with better results.
SpendMend is a non-intrusive asset and great to work with; they build relationships with their clients and truly understand the Procure-to-Pay process.
If our team is finding money from recovery audits then I know there are many other non-profit hospital systems that would find value in executing this work as well.
I think the SpendMend staff is top notch and very professional and very knowledgeable. I work hand in hand with your people and I think you have great people and a great culture.
