Meperia Offers Free COVID-19 Resource Guide

A Compilation of Critical Supplies with Functional Alternatives for the Healthcare Community

SANTA FE, NM, USA, March 30, 2020 / -- Meperia, the first supply chain content enablement provider bringing predictive intelligence solutions to the healthcare market, today released their new ‘Resource Guide: Critical Supplies with Functional Alternatives’ for customers and the general public in response to the COVID-19 healthcare crisis.

Meperia is a technology company that places significant emphasis on AI-driven technology to promote unlimited data attribution and normalization. With millions of medical-surgical items and over 20,000 manufacturer catalogs in our Virtual Item Master, we can quickly and easily identify products that are functional alternatives (items share either the same attributes as the primary product or have most attributes in common with the primary product). Not only does the Virtual Item Master support manufacturer data and critical distribution data, it provides UNSPC, GTIN, HCPCS, Revenue codes and unlimited attributes as well.

“We recognize during this COVID-19 pandemic we all have an important role to play in supporting one another, “said Tom Frith, Meperia Executive Vice President. “Working with clinicians we have identified key attributes for each product noun/type family that equate to a unique functional alternative item family. These item families can be leveraged for identifying viable substitutes during product shortages like our healthcare system is facing today. By compiling this data into a single resource, we hope to make life a little easier for healthcare staff as they serve their patients and the community.”
