Bill Only typically refers to those products that are delivered the day of or the day prior to a procedure. These are typically implants such as those used in orthopedic procedures. The hospital doesn’t record these items in their inventory like they do most products. However, the hospital has to generate a purchase requisition and pay the vendor. Thus the term bill only.

By digitizing critical information and automating manual tasks such as price verification, Bill Only Management can cut from weeks or even months of the purchase cycle time to days or even hours, and with a lot less work on your part.
