What's Kermit?

Kermit is an analytics platform that delivers insight to the fragmented spend category of physician preference items

Kermit equips supply chain managers, surgeons and executives with real-time data on implantable medical device transactions, offering unprecedented visibility that’s saving hospitals millions of dollars.

The Problem

Lack of visibility makes PPI spend hard to manage

the problem

For surgeons

Most surgeons don’t know what implantable medical devices cost or what the hospital is being charged. They have no way to help manage spend.

For supply chain managers

Ensuring fair and accurate billing with so many cases, contracts and devices is nearly impossible for supply chain managers.

For financial and quality executives

Confounded by poor data, executives have limited ability to address PPI-related inefficiencies, struggling to ensure profitability in the ever-changing reimbursement environment.

Kermit aligns value and spend management initiatives, solving all of these issues with one simple tool.

The Solution

Let collaboration lead the change

the solution

For surgeons

Kermit allows for easy tracking of PPI spend by doctor, department and device, giving surgeons the insight they need to help manage spend and share best practices.

For supply chain managers

Real-time analytics from Kermit give the supply chain team the precise information they need to audit, negotiate and maximize savings.

For financial and quality executives

Clean integrated analytics pinpoint an easy place to take back financial control of PPI and build partnerships with clinicians. Kermit produces clean data that can also be transmitted to platforms that support the transition to ICD-10 and adding to joint registries like AJRR.
