Pittsburgh, PA — Prodigo, whose solutions improve health care provider supply chain performance, is pleased to announce that after an extensive competitive evaluation, world-renowned Houston Methodist has selected its platform.
Said David Peck, the system’s VP of Supply Chain, “We started out wanting a better requisitioning experience for our staff and now trust that we will arrive at a place that ultimately benefits our patients. The value of this ‘data machine’ and clear potential for clinical improvements is hard to overstate.”
While taking note of Houston Methodists’ #1 ranking in Texas for 8 years running, Prodigo’s Chairman, Joe Mayernik, also commented on the system’s reputation for community engagement: “Upon learning the details of Houston Methodist’s I CARE Action Program, we were all taken back.” I CARE grants eligible Houston Methodist employees the opportunity to take paid leave for community service while promoting the system’s core values of Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Excellence. Added Mayernik, “the program has been a big win for Houston communities —an impressive model.”
Prodigo’s virtual item master is one of the largest, consumable repositories of healthcare market data in the United States. The addition of Houston Methodist further strengthens Prodigo’s command and control over one of the industry’s most valuable supply chain assets.
