Vendor affiliation opportunities in LTPAC facilities have proven to make a significant impact. In this competitive environment for the LTPAC industry, every dollar counts, and Vendor Affiliations can be a great deal for LTPAC organizations. Vendor Affiliation and Cooperation occurs when Vendors work with LTPAC organizations to sell their products, typically with a percentage going to the LTPAC organization. They essentially serves as win-win scenarios: the vendor gains in sales and customer reach and the organization profits off of the sales that they help create. However, Vendor Affiliations can have their own issues. LTPAC facilities might fear compromising on the care that they recommend to their patients for short-term gain. Additionally, LTPAC organizations might want to switch their Vendor Affiliations or Cooperations after just a few months or years. If the affiliations are too intertwined with their workflow or software system, this could cause major costs of both time and money in the event of such a breakup. Finally, even if the relationship between the vendor and facility goes well, it is a complicated one to manage. Three parties — customer, vendor, and facility — all have to be content, and this requires serious coordination and logistics.
An answer to this quandary is a software system that cooperates with customer needs and is flexible enough that it can easily integrate and update. Software solutions are a key component of an LTPAC facility’s procedures and a system that can work with vendors can provide peace of mind as well as increased efficiency. Additionally, software solutions should be able to easily update as facilities add and switch Vendor Affiliations and Cooperations.
