Össur Americas and OPIE Software are proud to announce the renewal of their agreement for participation in the OPIE Integrated Supplier program to include the functionality to order the prosthetic products of Össur Americas for practices using the OPIE and Futura Systems. This integration allows Futura and OPIE software users to search through a digital catalog of Össur’s prosthetic products and place orders with Össur through the OPIE Purchasing & Inventory system or at Shop@oandp.com.
“Our past three years of working together have been quite productive and have helped our mutual clients to operate their practices more efficiently,” stated Kim DeRoy, VP of Sales, Marketing & Education for Prosthetics – Americas. “We are excited about how our two organizations can work together over the next three years to bring new products to the U.S. market through as efficient a manner as possible.”
Paul Prusakowski, CPO, FAAOP, CEO of OPIE Software, said, “We appreciate the ongoing support of Össur and are strongly committed to evolving the OPIE Purchasing & Inventory System to bring growing value to our practice clients as well as our Integrated Suppliers. By adding even more functionalities into the Purchasing System like serial number tracking and direct links to patient records, we are able to make the product purchasing process as efficient as possible. With strong partners like Össur, we can help O&P practices to further improve their efficiencies in our increasingly challenging healthcare world.”
Over 400 O&P practices have ordered the Össur products through the OPIE Purchasing & Inventory System over the past year. Several technical innovations added over the past few years within the Purchasing System have made the ordering of the more complex Össur products extremely efficient and effective.
