IRVING, Texas, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week, aptitude LLC, the technology and data company that accelerates strategic supply chain partnerships, was recognized by Spend Matters as one of the "50 providers to watch" in 2016. The list of "rising stars and must know firms who are pushing the envelope" is a special recognition by industry experts and peers after a review of the latest procurement technology and service offerings in healthcare.
"We are honored to be recognized as a part of the top 50 providers to watch list," said Troy Kirchenbauer, GM of aptitude. "This external acknowledgement of our hard work and dedication to improving the healthcare supply chain motivates us to continue to work with our customers to deliver unique value to our industry."
The healthcare startup was launched in 2013 as an online direct contracting market. Since inception, aptitude has remained committed to creating an intuitive, robust analytics and contracting platform that allows both hospitals and suppliers to achieve greater efficiency and improved financial performance.
"As a technology company, it is critical that we not only meet customer expectations, but exceed them," said Lincoln Fellingham, Senior Director of Technology at aptitude. "For example, we just released a platform enhancement that allows hospitals to run what-if scenarios across millions of unique contracting variables and deliver the results in mere seconds. The powerful capability has already begun to identify optimized approaches to contracting that satisfy the needs of clinicians while maximizing savings. "
Leveraging the data, technology, and industry experts on staff, aptitude continues to not only enhance their existing platform, but develops innovative ways to deliver value to customers. Recently aptitude announced a new venture with Upper Midwest Consolidated Services Center (UMCSC), a Vizient Inc. SupplyNetwork, aimed at improving transparency between supply chain partners, UMCSC reveal™. The new data sharing service offers unprecedented insight into purchase history of this industry leading network to their suppliers.
Launched as a healthcare start-up in April of 2013, aptitude quickly built a credible image in the industry as a reliable alternative to the traditional self-contracting process. As the market continues to mature, aptitude helps buyers & sellers identify opportunities, streamline execution and improve performance with a current focus on medical surgical products, clinical preference items and medical devices.
