Generally, the information that's coming from the distributor is very well-managed by the distributor through to the hospitals, but using a solution is still a benefit. Where providers have more difficulty with keeping up with the documentation is for their orders that go direct to the smaller companies. That's where the magnitude comes up, but it's probably an 80/20. They order most of their product through a distributor, so it's covered, but they can order from up to 50 smaller manufacturers. They have to have a process in place with each individual manufacturer, and that is very cumbersome.
