Medpricer mSource® Analytics now offers industry first terminology customization and on-the-fly editing of purchased services spend classifications.
April 5, 2018 – Guilford, CT – Medpricer, a purchased services cost management platform for healthcare providers, today unveiled the second generation of its mSource® analytics software with industry-leading functionality.
Having taken the client experience into account, it’s now easier than ever to evaluate purchased services spend by category.
Medpricer’s San Francisco-based engineering team developed customizable features within the analytics module and refreshed the user interface, further improving the overall usability and client experience.
The most valuable additions cited by customers include:
While the mSource® analytics suite is designed to automatically categorize purchased services spend into Medpricer’s standard terminology, users can now merge and re-name default categories to fit their own in-house terminology. This powerful feature ensures seamless integration in an organization’s business process and continuity across inter-department stakeholders.
Improved Internal Communications and Supplier Quality Rating Capabilities
To improve collaboration between procurement teams and stakeholders, Medpricer has added a communications portal that gathers supplier quality ratings on purchased services providers. This enables the procurement function to gather qualitative feedback that may be used in consideration during the contract renewal process.
Category-Centric Data Analysis
Moving beyond individual contract analysis, users can now aggregate purchased services spend data using a category-centric approach. This gives supply chains transparency on purchasing activity across all suppliers within a category, simplifying the process to evaluate cost-savings initiatives that guide contract renewal and RFP strategies.
Best-in-industry Support and Guidance
Medpricer has amassed a database of market intelligence over the past 13 years that offers insights on purchased services spend across healthcare provider industry. The database is integrated with mSource® and it reveals a sourcing difficulty score to help users prioritize negotiation tasks within their savings strategy.
