Driven by global standards, HealthTrust Europe’s inSightSM e-procurement solution provides automation of key purchasing functions for NHS providers; subsequently reducing errors, improving the quality of information and increasing productivity. This ultimately results in significant financial savings and better patient care.
The inSight platform consists of four key components; e-Catalogue, e-Commerce, Inventory Management and Spend Analytics. Each component contains different modules or services to offer complete flexibility with member needs. These components can be implemented individually or as a package and can either fully integrate with, or replace, existing Trust systems.
Offering access to a highly intuitive, GS1 accredited e-catalogue module and a PEPPOL compliant e-commerce module, the inSight solution focuses on improving the availability of catalogue data at the point-of-use by client organisations and facilitating electronic trading with suppliers.
- The e-Catalogue component offers members the ability to host and manage all HealthTrust Europe, local and third party content within the same environment. This includes access to a fully featured cloud-based web-shop offering highly advance catalogue searching, simple requisition generation and customisable approvals workflow.
- The e-Commerce component offers a full EDI exchange for business documents, including purchase orders, purchase order acknowledgements, advance shipping notices and invoices. This incredibly powerful module enables users to configure automated business rules against any attribute of an inbound or outbound transaction; such as automated price variance checks against updated catalogue files or contract adherence checks against invoice lines.
- The Inventory Management module delivers the enhanced visibility and control of stock items within departments and central stock locations as part of an internal hospital economy, including easy integration with handheld devices.
- HealthTrust Europe is participating in a global Spend Analytics programme with its parent organisation HealthTrust. This service includes a bill checking dashboard, providing detailed reporting on all discrepancies identified by the compliance and quality checks defined within the e-Commerce module.
