2018 Winner: Lafayette General Health System, Inc.​

  • Over the course of two years, Lafayette General Health System underwent a radical transformation – from largely manual processes (only 15 EDI vendors) and no visibility into contract price exceptions, to an automated procure-to-pay process with 202 EDI vendors, and real time contract price exception visibility.
  • The organization has driven down its part number exception rate from 39 percent to 3 percent, and unit of measure (UOM) exception rate from 50 percent to 4 percent.
  • Today, 95 percent of purchase orders (PO) are confirmed, which reduces the amount of time buyers spend following up on orders. Lafayette General Health System has also made tremendous progress in matching purchases to contracts, increasing its “hit rate” from 20 percent up to 65 percent.
