Current product comparison methods result in part number or descriptive misalignment and can fail to identify probable matches. Using multiple match methodologies, artificial intelligence technologies can support comprehensive attribute alignment. This helps organizations to better direct product sourcing to prime vendors with agreements that bring economic advantage and to support standardization efforts with clinicians, such as lowering the number and cost of physician preference items (PPI).
