    Our software helps us analyze your past data very quickly so that we can quickly determine where the potential cost savings are.

    In many cases, we identify historical over-charges that we can get refunded from vendors.

It doesn’t matter what system or process you use, if you don’t have automated visibility and access to your purchased services invoice line item details – you are missing cost savings and overspending.

Your Hospital and Health Systems are Overpaying, at Minimum, Tens of Thousands of Dollars Due to Invoice Inaccuracy.

Since services are utilized then invoiced—your hospital depends on the purchased services vendor to invoice accurately. Yet, we see that greater than 30% of all purchased services invoices are priced incorrectly from the agreed upon contract terms, are not on contract, or have excessive extra fees added.

This requires someone from your hospital to manually review pages of invoices and hundreds of line items for accuracy and also utilization improvement opportunities. Many of the purchased services invoices do not get thoroughly reviewed with errors and hospitals are overpaying each month.

TestimonialS

We engaged VIE Healthcare® to assist us in evaluating and reducing our purchased services spend, a growing segment of our operating expenses. Their patented methodology to compare actual spend to contract spend, using line-item invoice detail, helped us recover hundreds of thousands of dollars related to inaccurate billing. Further, they’ve been responsible for well over a million dollars in savings by partnering with us to evaluate our rates against market rates for services, ultimately leading to re-negotiated terms with our vendors and anticipate I more to come as we continue our work with VIE Healthcare®. This all happened within the first 6 months of the engagement. I couldn’t be more pleased with their approach and results.
