EcoVate has a track record in assisting clients to generate cost savings through buying better, using less, generating more and operating more efficiently.
As a result, we now have a single service provider to provide regional Community Health pharmacy provisions, including a digital approach to procurement of stock and dispensing services, ensuring best price is achieved. Local communities now not only have access to pharmacy provisions, but there is also a home delivery option for patients who need this service; this is a considerable end-user benefit from the patient perspective. In terms of efficiency, moving to a single service provider has simplified the services and offers the Trust the ability to adapt to fluctuations in the Trust’s portfolio of services. With the support of EcoVate’s innovative specialist procurement services, we have achieved the commissioning of a progressive pharmacy service provider.
As a result, we have now been able to integrate three existing contracts into one, creating a single, unified and revitalised team with a new sense of purpose. We have replaced onerous and costly contracts, that were not delivering to the required standard with a new contract that is based on outcomes and vested principles. The new contract that EcoVate have supported us in securing has exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and compliance and will deliver a 3% annual cost reduction whilst improving service quality.
