Automated invoice verification at Munich University Hospital
The University Hospital of Munich (KUM) is one of the largest hospitals in Europe. With 2080 beds and 45 clinics, institutes and departments, the hospital treats over half a million patients every year. Invoice verification is automated, and thus quickly and efficiently with the solution tangro IM.
Firstly, a central invoice address was introduced and a central scanning workstation was set up with a defined number of users. This allowed the incoming flow of invoices to be channelled to the right place. The second step was to automate invoice verification in SAP.
This solution tangro IM offered exactly the functionality that the hospital needed to process incoming invoices: complete integration in SAP and a user interface that is identical to the ERP system. Most importantly of all, however, tangro IM is embedded in the SAP ERP system. Data in SAP can be accessed in real time, with no need to read it out. And because there is also no need for an upstream system for interpretation, the hospital is saved additional investments. "The tangro IM user interface mirrors the SAP interface. This makes it easy for users to get to grips with the system, so only a few hours' orientation are needed," says Veronika Lehmann, who works in the medical technology and IT department (MIT) at KUM.
