When it comes to construction cost and capital equipment, technology and pricing can change quickly. Construction, renovation and capital equipment projects are time-intensive, difficult to manage and expensive. And it’s challenging to determine the right time to invest in capital equipment when budgets are tight and new technology might be just around the corner.
While it’s essential to provide patients with the best facilities and equipment, the costs are high. You need to lower costs, increase efficiency and improve facilities to better serve your patient population.

Introducing PremierConnect® Capital Analytics
What is PremierConnect Capital Analytics?
Capital Analytics is a new Premier application used for capital price benchmarking. It allows users to enter their own data and receive instant results, saving time and money while also serving as a central repository for capital price information.
How does Capital Analytics work?
At time of initial launch, Capital Analytics will be used to benchmark member’s capital purchase price at the line item level. Users of the application simply scan and upload their price quote into the system, validate that the information has been populated correctly and the system then creates a price benchmark comparison report. This allows the user to see where their price falls in comparison to Premier’s top tier contract price and other price quotes for the same item that has been loaded in the system. Being equipped with this level of information helps to ensure that users are getting the best price possible for their capital purchases, ultimately leading to the reeducation of supply chain costs.
