Viewpost and Medius Help Florida Hospital Cure Costly Inefficiencies

Viewpost, the secure B2B network for electronic invoicing payments and real-time cash management, announced today an expanded relationship with Florida Hospital, one of the largest not-for-profit healthcare providers in the United States. With a combination of services from Viewpost and Medius, a leading provider of AP invoice automation solutions in the cloud, Florida Hospital is accelerating and optimizing bill payment to greatly reduce back-office costs while continuing its commitment to expert, compassionate and individualized patient care.

Florida Hospital is a long-time customer of Viewpost and a recent adopter of Viewpost Express® early payment discounting. The addition of MediusFlow, a next-generation cloud-based AP invoice automation solution from Medius, is expected to accelerate Florida Hospital’s discount savings by reducing invoice processing time, making it possible to capture even more available early payment discounts.

Working with Medius to further accelerate and optimize payables for an existing customer is a first-of-its-kind partnership for Viewpost and a prime example of how healthcare companies like Florida Hospital are leading the way in payables automation and operational efficiency. The combination of these services, including dynamic discounting and supplier presentment and payment, has improved trading partner relationships and reduced costs for Florida Hospital, positively impacting the organization’s commitment to its million-plus patients each year.

“The medical industry has been leading the migration to electronic patient records, so it’s a natural step for us to do the same with electronic business transactions,” said Esmond Chan, Director of Accounting at Florida Hospital. “With over 10,000 suppliers from across the country, Florida Hospital is using Viewpost to streamline payables, lower operating costs, and collaborate with our suppliers to provide more than $5 million in working capital financing.”

Taking full advantage of Viewpost Express early payment discounting, Florida Hospital has made more than 2,600 dynamic discounting transactions with 147 suppliers, saving tens of thousands of dollars.

Florida Hospital is streamlining transactions across the country by sending electronic payments through the Viewpost network to suppliers that include 3M, Allstate, FedEx, Georgetown University, H.J. Heinz, Harvard University, Google, Mayo Clinic, Medtronic, Microsoft, St. Jude Medical, Target and The Walt Disney Company.

“The partnership between Medius and Viewpost will expand our offering and further enhance our ability to modernize the way accounts payable functions. We’re excited to help Florida Hospital achieve their invoice automation goals,” said Andreas Granath, Senior Vice President at Medius. “By focusing on capture, validation, process management and reporting, our clients can easily map out their gaps, identify areas for improvement and build a streamlined roadmap toward AP invoice processing best practice. Viewpost’s comprehensive and inventive solution for data visibility in the B2B marketplace is a perfect complement to our own cloud-based invoice automation and benchmarking capabilities.”

“Viewpost is designed to remove the costly transactional friction experienced by any company, from the largest enterprises to the smallest service providers,” said Max Eliscu, CEO of Viewpost. “Florida Hospital, with its diverse population of suppliers and quick adoption of Viewpost Express dynamic discounting and payment automation, is validation of the win-win created by an ability to securely connect, transact and track payments electronically while collaborating to optimize cash distribution and access to on-demand working capital.”
