Spend Control for Care providers
Speak to an Expert

Free up resources to focus on what matters most: giving the best possible care

Increasing policies and tightening regulations, mergers and acquisitions, over reliance on disparate, legacy systems, and the need to innovate to address competition is applying huge pressure on margins and costs for Care companies.

And today’s ever-increasing demands require Procurement and Finance functions to not only create value that translates to benefits for payers, patients and shareholders, but to also ensure reliability across organisation-wide systems at all times. This reliability, and accuracy, is imperative, so your technology needs to be “always-on,” up-to-date and ensure constant supply for the whole of your organisation.

Managing multiple sites and business units can result in uncontrolled spending and supply for your organisation. But visibility and control of every category of spend, accurately, is absolutely key to success. Automating processes, removing wasted or non-compliant spending, and consistency across the supply chain are all possible.
 
Opportunities exist to place a renewed focus on driving greater value out of existing spend management capabilities, both under contract and under management.

Achieve the next level of purchasing and supply chain performance, across your organisation

Now you can ensure your spend control activities continue to add sustainable value by re-examining your structures, processes and capabilities; across your entire organisation.  

With Proactis, an essential tool for Care providers seeking to cut costs and boost compliance, you can strategically source reliable suppliers to get the best value, maintain visibility of supplier discovery, drive value-based contracting and achieve collaborative supplier performance. You can control every category of spend while enabling your employees to find and buy what they need to do their jobs; via a consumer style experience so all your team, from the Senior team to frontline workers, can use it with ease. Guided buying is in place to reduce out-of-contract spend, and direct all users to approved suppliers.

You are there to deliver care but you are also a business so cost control and efficiencies should be key considerations. Care organisations have also used Proactis to cut costs and improve invoice efficiency. This not only ensures compliant spending, but also makes your organisation “easy to do business with" for suppliers, and frees up resources from time-consuming Procure-to-Pay tasks.
