PurNet strives to find innovative ways to assists its member in achieving savings on their supply cost every year that they are a member. One way is through our utilization audit which consists of our team auditing a member’s last 12 months of purchase order history to identify contracts, tiers, and pricing. At that time we look to find products that a member was charged incorrectly on along with signing any new contracts and/or updating expired contract information.
Members enrolled in the Basic Med. Surg. Contract Program and Expanded Contract Program are responsible to pursue all manufacturer, vendor, and/or distributor credits. PurNet pursues all credits on behalf of members enrolled in the Full-Service Materials Management Program.
Another way we find savings is through our suggested product crossover report. PurNet audits a member’s inventory and identifies products that are equivalent in quality but cheaper in price. PurNet then forwards the information to the member to review and approve the product substitution. PurNet does not substitute any product without prior authorization from the member.
Members enrolled in the Basic Med. Surg. Contract Program and Expanded Contract Program are responsible to arrange product substitutions and to switch any products. PurNet arranges product substitutions and will work to switch any approved products substitutes on behalf of members enrolled in the Full-Service Materials Management Program.
