When purchasing equipment from major manufacturers and distributors directly from within the Brightree ePurchasing interface, providers report a 50-70% reduction in time spent placing orders. And because there is no duplicate data entry required, there is less room for human error and incorrect orders.
The Brightree Integrated ePurchasing Program allows you to order directly from major manufacturers and distributors, including First Choice Medical Supply, Independence Medical, McKesson, Medline and ResMed, all from within Brightree HME.
Our Integrated ePurchasing solution allows you to access these major supplier catalogs as well as the most current pricing and product information available. Brightree leverages your individual pricing structure, so that the cost schedules you have negotiated with these suppliers are correctly and automatically represented on the purchase order. Even if you already do online purchasing, doing it within the Brightree HME billing system eliminates re-keying and allows you to reduce staff time spent on ordering equipment and supplies by 30%.

How It Works
When a purchase order is created in Brightree HME, a transmission is sent from Brightree via a secure FTP connection to the manufacturer or distributor system. The electronic links between the systems will give the customer real-time access to product details, inventory availability and critical order information as well as the ability to submit a purchase order directly without having to call or fax in orders. The links will also give customers the ability to track their purchases with order confirmations, shipping and delivery notifications, as well as electronic invoices all within the Brightree HME billing software.
