SOMERSET, N.J. – March 28, 2012– Alliance Life Sciences Consulting Group (ALSCG), a leading management and technology consultancy, announces the implementation of MemberMATCH™ at a top-five pharmaceutical manufacturer.  A solution to streamline the group purchasing organization (GPO) membership confirmation process, MemberMATCH™ centralizes critical data sources, reduces and eliminates manual processing, and increases compliance.

“Our client had been manually maintaining customer membership and contract eligibility using internal and external data sources – activities that were labor-intensive, time-consuming and introduced compliance risks,” says Ed Masterson, senior vice president, consulting operations, ALSCG. “The MemberMATCH™ solution strengthened the integrity of the data within the manufacturer’s existing GPO membership system of record. From a workload perspective, this resulted in a 45 percent decrease in processes associated with membership management.”

The MemberMATCH™ membership automation solution provides several key functions, including a demographic verification and the recently released Class of Trade (COT) validation. MemberMATCH™ is provided through the cloud, enabling the client to avoid high infrastructure costs and speed time to implementation.

ALSCG provides life sciences manufacturers with strategies for defining, deploying and supporting business critical applications under its Pricing and Contracting, Business Process Improvement, and Information Management Practices.

“MemberMATCH™ is another example of how our solutions enable our clients to deliver more effectively, and at lower costs,” adds Masterson. “It provides a centralized repository for key data reference sources, all of which are ultimately leveraged to ensure accuracy of inbound GPO membership rosters. Empowered with more accurate chargeback processing capabilities, our top-five client can now enjoy enhanced relationships with its wholesalers, and achieve potential savings by strengthening the accuracy of its GPO membership.
