Overcoming challenges

AI Automation for Inventory Planning & Contracted Rates Optimization

Challenge #1

Manual Inventory Reconciliation & Monitoring

Healthcare organizations often face challenges in manually managing their inventory due to their diverse needs and entity-specific variables. These variables include drug access, par level requirements, patient population trends, expected usage, and more. This repetitive work typically requires involvement from pharmacists, operations teams, and pharmacy staff, consuming valuable time as they navigate through numerous disparate data sources and crosswalks reactively

Our solution

Continuous and proactive inventory optimization

Plenful’s Inventory Planning Solution offers real-time monitoring and proactive notifications that are fully configurable to the customer’s needs. It provides direct outputs related to medication inventory, including analytics on medication usage, expected usage patterns, reconciliation of wholesaler order data, and more. Give peace of mind to your pharmacy teams and spend time only where it's needed most

Challenge #2

Contracted Rates Optimizations

Many healthcare organizations experience overpayments, underpayments, and discrepancies in contracted rates, resulting in negative financial outcomes and suboptimal reimbursements. Often, the manual reconciliation work falls on pharmacy, operations, finance, and compliance teams, who must process it reactively in ad hoc, repetitive batches. Significant missed opportunities occur due to disparate, unstructured data sources, unique entity-specific crosswalks, evolving external factors, and large volumes of data

Our solution

Challenge #3

Infusion Medication Inventory Forecasting & Optimization

For infusion and cancer centers, the risk of medication shortages and waste is especially stressful due to the high cost of medications, limited supply on hand, and patient care impact. Analyzing the number of patients on a specific treatment plan and predicting when more patients will need a particular medication involve significant variability and complexity. Medication shortages and wastage present substantial risks to patient care and financial stability
