hunterAI’s unique cloud-native artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) platform requires no human intervention to sort and categorize data. It extracts raw ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) data or OCR’s (Optical Character Recognition) pdf documents (Invoices, Purchase Orders, Statement of Works and Contracts); cleanses, optimizes, commoditizes and “deep” categorizes data so individual product and services transaction spend data can be compared within a single provider, across all users and all suppliers on the platform.
“We are excited to offer Vizient members our technology through this agreement. We support health systems who are under tremendous cost pressure by removing complex barriers to gaining insights from their spend data," said hunterAI CEO, Jeffrey Heenan-Jalil. “Executives and employees of healthcare organizations should not be the casualty of cost cutting measures whilst alternative solutions remain”.
The insights Dashboards spotlights additional purchasing opportunities, provides strategic and evidence-based insights on the alternative sourcing options, highlights key price cost avoidance opportunities, supplier and product benchmarking, and product substitution alternatives. Individual data sets, unique to each provider, are now automated and normalized at an industry level. Additionally, Business Analysts support is available directly to the provider, to support their internal Procurement and Supply Chain departments, simplifying their manual and episodic purchasing process into a continuous flow of relevant and immediate insights. This is a truly compounded benefit offering.
