Eliminates provider paid fees for HDMS VendorLink

Davison, MI - March 18, 2015

Universal Software Solutions, Inc., (USSI) a leading provider of practice
management solutions for the home healthcare markets, announced today that it has enhanced its electronic data exchange capabilities with McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc. by now offering VendorLink, a direct connection to McKesson Medical-Surgical for automatic drop shipments, free of charge.

“We are excited about our new relationship with USS and their team. Both McKesson Medical-Surgical and USS realize the reimbursement and regulatory pressure our customers are under and believe this new relationship will help our customers more efficiently navigate this complex environment when ordering medical supplies,” says Jeff Bowman, Vice President, Home Care sales for McKesson Medical-Surgical.

This connection automatically stores shipment confirmations, tracking numbers, and invoice data documents to help process claims faster. In addition, home healthcare providers are able to place drop ship orders and
electronic stock orders directly into their Healthcare Data Management System (HDMS) software, thereby helping to reduce warehousing costs.

“By implementing a drop ship strategy, a company can become more efficient by removing stocked inventory from its shelves and reducing the need to touch low margin items. Our clients working with McKesson Medical-Surgical have seen significant improvements in inventory control while keeping a high level of patient satisfaction,” says Christopher Dobiesz, President of Universal Software Solutions, Inc.

The VendorLink module enables providers to quickly place orders with McKesson Medical-Surgical, thereby helping to decrease handling and warehousing costs and eliminate re-keying and data entry errors. Additionally, virtual delivery confirmation tickets are rendered into document imaging automatically upon receiving the electronic confirmation including shipping confirmation details, providing a complete cycle of documentation that is available at any time.
