Prodigo by Industry:
PUBLIC SECTOR

Same Solutions – Different Needs

Solutions for the Public Sector that direct users to the right item, from the right vendor, at the right price.

While the solutions are the same for the commercial market, Prodigo’s unique customizations can meet the needs of every government agency. With Prodigo’s experience in the public sector [view press release here] along with long-term success in commercial health systems’ transformation, Prodigo is well positioned to help government agencies move from reactive to modern, proactive supply chain management.

Challenges

Healthcare, both public and commercial, face challenges that directly and indirectly affect patient care. Technology solutions that offer the best support are solutions that identify specific challenges and offer customized solutions. Some current industry pain points are:

Visibility

Data quality and management in agencies is siloed in legacy systems which poses difficulties when connecting to the digital ecosystem, and in modernizing a supply chain

Government agencies with multiple branches can lack transparency which causes the inability to be actionable

Systems are often unaware of activity beyond the first tier, leading to unknown inventory threats and lack of visibility between contracting offices

Systems struggle to standardize contracts or share contracts across budgetary boundaries, resulting in duplicative contracts for the same items across the same suppliers and manufactures, often with disparate pricing

Losses

Agencies pay many different prices for the same item or service which typically causes increased spend across many different commodities

Varying prices may also prevent government agencies from paying the best price based on its vast economies of scale

Government agencies have some of the largest spend in many areas but based on its contracting, acquisition practices and policies, rarely achieve best in market pricing based on its total spend

Minimizing spend leakage and controlling spend may be viewed as easier than increasing the same amount of patient revenue, but agencies may not always have the means to do so

Efficiency

Public sector supply chain is under increasing pressure to become more user friendly, responsive and efficient

Most of the public sector systems used to store and manage data within an agency are outdated, poorly maintained and insufficiently funded, leading to a loss in the value of data

As systems become increasingly populated with inadequate records, data control and SSoT decreases, making harmonizing, cleansing and enriching data difficult, time consuming and costly

Most government agencies lack the resources and tools needed to address the quality of data and fail to satisfy the demand for improved efficiency and connectivity required for digital transformation
