Value Analysis Workflow

Improve new product and standardization decisions with a workflow solution that connects users to best-in-class intelligence and clinical evidence content

New health technologies are introduced daily. As a Value Analysis and Supply Chain decision maker, you can better connect with physicians and clinical leaders to determine the safest and most cost-effective products for your health system.

ECRI’s transparent value analysis management strengthens collaboration and ensures confident, data-driven decisions

Evaluating new product and technology requests often can be complex. Disjointed review processes, communication barriers, and lack of trustworthy information are common challenges when trying to balance supply chain and clinical alignment goals.

ECRI Value Analysis Workflow helps bridge these gaps and simplifies the decision-making process by connecting the right components in a centralized and powerful platform. The result? Better communication with key stakeholders and a more organized and streamlined process—starting from product request, to decision, to retrospective analysis stages.

To achieve better management of your value analysis process and greater visibility, ECRI empowers you to leverage three core elements to guide your work:

Multiple decision types

The all-in-one decision support platform is evidence-based, applicable to many decision types, and provides flexibility for use across your categories of purchased items and your organization. Choose to run single request types or gain the enhanced ability to run multiple requests. The result is better management of specialized requests such as capital equipment, which typically accounts for 15 percent of all new product requests evaluated. Ultimately, this allows health systems to make more effective multi-million-dollar decisions for:

  • Physician preference items, med-surg supplies, or capital equipment
  • Standardization requests
  • Institutional Review Board (IRB) requests
  • Specialized capital workflow requests
