Tecsys Bolsters Its Industry Leading End-to-End Elite™ Healthcare Supply Chain Execution Platform with Consolidated Pharmacy Inventory Management

Tecsys | August 24, 2021

Tecsys Inc. (TSX: TCS), an industry-leading supply chain management software company, today announces another significant milestone to its end-to-end Elite™ Healthcare supply chain execution platform with its end-to-end consolidated pharmacy inventory management solution. Integrating unified visibility and control from the point of reception to the point of use, Tecsys' consolidated pharmacy inventory management solution extends its best-in-class consolidated service center model to pharmaceutical supplies, lending the same sophisticated warehouse, distribution and point of use orchestration software to pharmacy operations.


"As healthcare supply chain continues to move from functional to strategic, it becomes irreconcilable to operate different legs of the supply chain with patchwork solutions that don't speak to each other," explains Chris Jellison, vice president, Pharmacy at Parkview Health.


Tecsys' consolidated pharmacy inventory management solution enables centralized strategic buying, management of pharmaceutical spend and procurement operations. By employing consolidated service center supply chain practices, the software helps to manage and mitigate drug shortages, reduces inventory and waste, and streamlines operations, all while integrating regulated processes to remain DSCSA compliant and optimize 340B programs.


"We already have multiple U.S. health systems who have selected this Tecsys platform, and several more looking to extend supply chain's reach and responsibility into pharmacy," says Peter Brereton, president and CEO at Tecsys. "For years, our customers have been honing their supply chains to ensure front-line healthcare workers are armed to deliver care that is both clinically and financially responsible, and this extension is a savvy step toward holistic management of goods within a health system. If we are serious about trying to root out blind spots in the hospital supply chain, pharmaceutical supplies is an area that stands to bridge those data gaps from an analytics and optimization lens."


The pharmaceutical supply chain typically operates in parallel to medical supply management, running siloed processes to track consumption and traceability as well as manage procurement and demand planning. To address this disconnect, progressive health systems are leveraging their Tecsys-enabled consolidated service centers (CSCs) to centralize pharmacy operations and consolidate supply chain management strategies. Tecsys software is able to reconcile these discrete datasets and procurement strategies under a common platform, providing centralized control and management of all supply chain execution supplies. Consolidated management of a pharmacy's supply chain allows for cost per case and cost per procedure analyses by factoring in pharmaceutical supplies, helping hospitals to optimize reimbursement programs and enable more strategic sourcing.


"Over the last decade, progressive health systems across the U.S. have adopted the CSC model to eliminate waste, streamline processes and tap into economies of scale," says Cory Turner, senior director, Healthcare Strategy. "Bringing pharmacy into that equation means extending much needed control and coordination to an historically bifurcated and disorganized inventory management operation. By applying the same sophistication to pharmacy as medical supplies, health systems are not only able to better orchestrate and analyze their operations, but they also stand to gain financial and clinical benefits as well."


Tecsys' consolidated pharmacy inventory management solution is embedded within the broader Tecsys Elite™ Healthcare portfolio, which combines for the most comprehensive supply chain execution system designed specifically for the healthcare industry. Optimized for the regulatory and operational complexities involved in orchestrating multiple clinical areas with differentiated clinical demands, the system provides unified visibility and control from the point of reception to the point of use.

CipherHealth and SADA Collaborate to Improve Patient Care Via Looker

CipherHealth | January 06, 2023

CipherHealth, a leader in patient engagement technology and communication solutions, recently teamed up with SADA, an award-winning Google Cloud Partner, to use Google Cloud's Looker to collect socioeconomic data to improve patient care. With this new feature, CipherHealth aims to empower healthcare leaders by enabling them to collect large volumes of data and assist patients and medical professionals at each point of the care journey. Earlier, CipherHealth's platform gave doctors and nurses complete conversational and clinical information about each patient. It worked with SADA, a company that knows how to set up and run Google Cloud's analytics platform Looker, to add self-service analytics to the platform and make it more useful. With the help of Looker Embedded Analytics, CipherHealth has made it easier for its clients to access this data for analysis and visualization at any time during the patient's life. As a result of the partnership, CipherHealth's clients, which include 500 hospitals across the country, will now have access to patient data about social determinants of health (SDOH). Also, they can use in-built analytics to divide patient groups and send personalized messages to each of them separately. With this information, CipherHealth's clients can zero in on a specific patient and find out what kind of treatment they need, along with any special accommodations (like if they have trouble making appointments). CipherHealth is HIPAA-compliant, meaning it may safely analyze and transfer clients' protected health information (PHI) over the internet. The company believes combining SADA with Google Cloud can give its clients a new view of their patient populations. It will also allow the company to make changes to its care delivery that are good for patients. In line with this, SADA said that the integration of Looker from Google Cloud improves the patient experience for CipherHealth and its clients. About CipherHealth CipherHealth is a proven technology solutions partner dedicated to improving patient communication and care. Since 2009, the company has helped build the market for patient engagement by making innovative tools that help providers give excellent care. The range of patient engagement programs from CipherHealth sets new standards for care and provides healthcare businesses with the tools they need to have meaningful conversations with their patients.
