Selecting the right supplier for each item in a daily purchase order to optimize your contracts with suppliers is complex and takes time away from a Pharmacies time with its patients. Shortages and drug substitutions from suppliers make it difficult to ensure that your pharmacies are purchasing to support your GCR. Direct purchasing with manufacturers for limited distribution drugs requires yet another manual step to remember. Driving purchasing compliance with your generic warehouse requires constantly reaching out to pharmacies when goals are not met. 340B programs create inventory swell when unsolicited shipments duplicate items that have just been ordered. How can you keep up with individual pharmacies that purchase outside supplier contracts or order directly from supplier websites?
Pharmacies need higher levels of automation, control and visibility into their purchasing to properly managed this process and ensure the best results.
OrderInsite’s purchasing management tools capture purchase orders from your pharmacy system and apply advanced business rules so that each item is directed to the appropriate supplier and the optimal price is achieved. Once the supplier is selected our integrated EDI gateway then automatically routes the orders to the right supplier and verifies items received against this original order.
