Hospitals and Health Systems

Improving Business Performance

Manage costs while managing care

AmerisourceBergen helps health systems restructure and streamline supply chain operations to meet the shifting demands of today's healthcare landscape. Our product recovery, inventory management and consulting services help reduce expenses and control costs, while our 340B services ensure that your health system remains financially healthy and compliant.

In 2012, U.S. hospitals provided $45.9 billion in uncompensated care

Often, thousands—and in some cases, millions—of eligible dollars go unrecovered by hospitals that do not have the resources to establish and manage complex, disparate recovery programs for uncompensated care. RecoveRx® is a no-risk, high-return solution for product recovery, with assessment and inventory management tools that can help:

  • Reduce drug and medical device expenses
  • Control personnel costs
  • Help patients reduce medical expenses
  • Improve care for disadvantaged patients
  • Reduce costly readmissions

Customer Spotlight: Henry Ford Health System

Managers at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan engaged AmerisourceBergen's Pharmacy Healthcare Solutions (PHS) consultants to revise processes and conduct mock audits to identify issues and develop corrective actions for the non-profit's 340B program. As a result, the health system implemented new systems to more quickly gather relevant data before, during and after audits, strengthening their 340B regulatory profile and boosting eligible patient enlistment rate to serve more people. 
The PHS consultants helped us revise and streamline our 340B systems and processes. As a result, our regulatory profile is much stronger and we've achieved financial savings by identifying and enrolling eligible patients at a higher rate.

Inventory management

The first patented RFID technology developed exclusively for healthcare systems, hospitals and blood centers, Cubixx Solutions is the preferred choice of major healthcare systems and rural facilities in more than 1,000 locations worldwide.

Product spotlight

Unit-dose pharmaceuticals

Providing timely medications to patients is a key concern for health systems. Health systems that can buy prepackaged medications directly from their distributor save time and money on staffing costs, allowing caregivers more time to focus on patient care. At American Health Packaging, our unit dose products help pharmacies control costs and avoid waste, promoting cost savings. Many of our products are industry exclusives and are the only unit-dose bar-coded package available in the marketplace. We partner with top GPOs for distribution and are stocked by the major industry wholesalers.
