VPL Launches Enhanced Data & Analytics Module to Give Healthcare Providers On-Demand Access to their Supply Chain Data

With software solutions for inbound and outbound freight management, supply chain visibility, and prescription shipping, VPL has announced a version two release of their supply chain data and analytics solution.

Columbus, OH, October 06, 2022—VPL, an industry leader in software technology solutions for healthcare systems, has just launched an enhanced version of their latest supply chain data and analytics solution—VPL Percept™.

Predicated on the fact that healthcare providers struggle to gain a comprehensive view of all data associated with how products move into and throughout the healthcare system, VPL Percept was developed to give health systems on-demand access to all data related to supply chain and freight management operations. With the data and analytics-specific module, hospitals can reduce missed charges, optimize freight expense, and take full advantage of contract pricing as well as reimbursement opportunities.

“We noticed a trend of customers frequently asking their customer success manager to provide supply chain data during a business review, email, or monthly touchpoint,” says Eric McGlade, CEO and Co-Founder at VPL. “With VPL Percept, our customers will now have immediate insight into their supply chain freight spend and can even watch trends over time.”

With simple implementation and adoption, VPL Percept can target and monitor customers’ business initiatives with readily available data, drive internal conversations about missed savings opportunities on outbound shipments, identify unnecessary supplier fees, and optimize supplier compliance.

“Due to hidden margin models, most health systems are overspending by at least 20% for inbound freight and at least 30% for outbound freight,” says McGlade. “VPL Percept provides visibility and transparency into inbound and outbound freight, revealing numerous cost savings opportunities and giving healthcare providers complete control over their supply chain operations.”

On-demand access to actionable data, insights, and analytics are a key differentiator for VPL in the market and a direct benefit of their technology-focused approach. To explain more about what VPL Percept has to offer health systems, VPL hosted a 30-minute educational webinar on Wednesday, October 5 at 12pm ET. You can access the on-demand recording here. You can also read their blog about the importance of data and analytics in the healthcare supply chain here.
