North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS), a regional healthcare organization located in Tupelo, Miss., has adopted a self-distribution strategy with Montreal-based TECSYS’ EliteSeries warehouse management software for healthcare.

With its self-distribution strategy enabled through the TECSYS software, NMHS now manages products in its supply chain, and has reduced product, operating and excessive costs associated with the purchasing, warehousing and delivery of supplies. Cost reductions to date are up to $14.5 million and an additional $8 million annually, while fill rate increased to 99.98%, according to the company.

NMHS’ network includes six hospitals, one surgery center, 32-owned clinics, four nursing homes, a home health agency and 23 school health centers.
