KARL STORZ selected Vistex to help transform its revenue management processes. As the medical device market shifts to an outcome-based model, Vistex demonstrated its capabilities to support KARL STORZ's critical business requirements as a complete solution.
"Vistex software will provide KARL STORZ with the flexibility they need to go beyond typical quantity-based pricing – enabling links between performed procedures and outcome definitions to the appropriate pricing and reimbursement amounts," said Sanjay Shah, Vistex Founder and CEO. "Our software is proven to support the industry's complex pricing management, and will allow KARL STORZ to participate effectively in this rapidly evolving healthcare delivery model."
Patrick Furtaw, Vice President, Service & Operations at KARL STORZ, complemented this view. "We're excited about our recent implementation and go-live of Vistex software. The solution has exceeded our expectations, and allowed us to link our product and service offerings to performed patient procedures and outcomes." Matt Butcher, Global Executive Director, IT Planning and Solution Development at KARL STORZ added, "Not only was this a successful rollout and deployment, it was also a great example of teamwork and collaboration between Vistex, KARL STORZ IT and business users. We have also provided our users an unprecedented level of reporting and analytics."
Furtaw further explains, "A key benefit to our customers is that KARL STORZ now has the ability to customize contracts to fit each customer's needs based on their specific history. The software also enables us to create risk-sharing agreements that allow us to take a risk as a partner, creating a closer alignment with the customer."
