Legacy Health Implements Procured Health's EvaluationPRO to Optimize Clinical Resource Management

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2015) - Legacy Health, a non-profit integrated network of hospitals based in Portland, Oregon and Procured Health, a leading provider of technology and data-driven solutions that allow healthcare organizations to optimize clinical product spend announced an agreement that will help Legacy derive greater value from its medical supply costs. The agreement means Legacy will integrate Procured's EvaluationPRO™ value analysis management solution into its product evaluation and selection processes.

"Legacy Health is committed to integrating innovative resources into our daily workflow to deliver affordable and high quality care to our patients," says Milrose Mercado, Vice President of Supply Chain for Legacy Health. "Clinical supply spend is a significant contributor to our overall operating costs, so we need a system that will allow us to establish a robust, streamlined process for selecting the right product, for the right patient, at the right time."

EvaluationPRO is part of a broader suite of clinical spend management solutions.

"Legacy Health's supply chain leadership recognizes that there is an important opportunity to bring their patients more value by carefully reviewing what products are used and when they should be used. We're excited to work with a forward-thinking organization to build the infrastructure and processes necessary to achieve those gains," said Hani Elias, Chief Executive Officer at Procured.
