Understanding non-labor expenses can be challenging from inside the organization. Hospitals often rely on their GPOs to help guide purchasing decisions. Washington Hospital Services Industry Partner Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) offers an independent lens through which hospitals can examine and compare non-labor costs. ERA provides expense management analysis and planning, and works on contingency so no up-front costs need be spent to engage their expertise. ERA recently conducted a webinar highlighting the business intelligence tool, SpendVu. The webinar was recorded and you can watch it here.
