Data Professional Services provide accurate, clean and standardized data that enable increased hospital contract compliance, simplified clinician purchasing and fewer errors. Data Professional Services focuses its efforts on everyday hospital contract item lists because the overwhelming majority of all items purchased use existing purchasing contracts.

In order to implement new materials management information systems (MMIS) or optimize current systems, many healthcare facilities need to consolidate, clean, and normalize their master files. Medibuy's Data Professional Services specializes in Vendor and Item entity identification, clean-up, and normalization. Medibuy provides these services by utilizing the skills and experience of our on-staff clinicians. We also leverage our portfolio of proprietary and 3rd party tools to help accomplish each facility's goals for their master files.
