 What you get with CrossCHEQ

CrossCHEQ integrates with PriceGuide™, our industry-leading price benchmarking service, making it easy to cross-reference competitive products and price benchmarks.

Identify suitable alternatives for the most important supply categories, including artificial heart valves, pacemakers, synthetic mesh, needleless connectors, disinfecting caps, and many more.

CrossCHEQ offers these three core elements to help inform and narrow your focus on supply chain product choices:

  • Product Comparisons. Get direct access to a searchable online database to quickly compare and identify functionally equivalent products within a category. Product attributes and key performance indicators are displayed for each item at the catalog number level.
  • PriceGuide Integration. View equivalent alternatives for products you buy. Suitable replacements are displayed as you view your own pricing and national price benchmarks in the PriceGuide database.
  • Unlimited Custom Analyses. Request on-demand analyses to identify alternate products not covered in existing product categories, especially when faced with out-of-stock, discontinued, and recall scenarios. Requests are limited to stand-alone medical-surgical supplies and implants and include the following types of reports:
    • ItemCHEQ–Individual item comparison including three to four alternatives
    • VendorCHEQ–Vendor comparison for functionally equivalent items
    • MarketCHEQ–Wider comparison of market alternatives within a product category
