Pathways Materials Managment (PMM)

Pathways Materials Managment (PMM) - is the Materials Management Information System (MMIS) for Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  The primary function of PMM is the creation of purchase orders for Medical Surgical Supplies and Services. PMM serves as the foundation for the Item Master. PMM interfaces with various systems throughout the Medical Center providing standard item file information and charge capture information.

  • Horizon Supply Source (HSS) - is an on-line requisitioning tool that talks directly to PMM. This tool is used by Clinical Enterprise end users to request supplies. Requisitions from HSS are converted to purchase orders in PMM and routed to the appropriate supplier.
