PartsSource announced today that it has expanded its ePartsFinder online ordering platform into what it calls the healthcare industry’s first comprehensive electronic catalog for medical replacement parts. Aggregating 2.5 million parts across multiple modalities, the site represents 1,000 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and 6,000 secondary suppliers.
The website is designed to aid clinical engineers and technicians by streamlining the manual, labor-intensive process of sourcing medical parts. The system enables real-time pricing, ecommerce ordering, and online shipment tracking from a single platform.
“Billions of dollars are wasted annually in purchasing inefficiencies, equipment downtime, underutilized human capital, and burdensome audit/compliance obligations,” said Phillip Settimi, MD, president and CEO of PartsSource. “For years, our customers have been asking for tools to counteract this unnecessary waste. We couldn’t be more pleased that PartsSource, and our technology-enabled parts procurement solutions, can be the answer to increased hospital productivity, cost management and safety in supply chain operations.”
Users of the site can filter results according to OEM, model, or category while viewing photos and exploded illustrations to ensure order accuracy. A key feature is the site’s on-demand custom pricing, including personalized OEM discounts, for all part options, including OEM direct, replacement, and refurbished parts. According to PartsSource, the tool can result in hospital savings of 15 to 50%, as well as increased productivity and equipment uptime.
