Accurate Data is Actionable Data

A healthy supply chain begins with accurate and reliable data. A key component of the Syft Synergy platform, Master Data Management (MDM) is a data auditing and cleansing service performed by a team of experienced analysts to strategically improve and manage client data assets.

Your Data Problem, Our Data Solution

According to one expert, “The biggest problem in hospitals is that they have copious amounts of data that could be valuable to improve efficiency of supply chain, but they can’t get to it because it is all in different silos. You have to be able to get to that data and get it into one place. Source

Best Practice Approach to Rationalized Data

This is accomplished by applying established best practice methods and industry standards. Syft MDM services support overall business optimization as hospitals get detailed and trusted insight into their overall supply spend, inventory processes and vendor relationships, while gaining operating efficiencies and user confidence.
