Item Master Services
Approximately 95 percent of a health system’s purchase order lines tie back to a product item that is managed in the item master file. If that data in that item master is unreliable, your best efforts to manage cost and deliver savings may be in jeopardy. Item Master Services ensures the data integrity of all item file attributes. The Procure-to-Pay solution improves price accuracy on transactions by synchronizing your item file price with your contract price on a daily basis in your enterprise resource planning system.
