Contract Administration Conference
Contract Administration Conference | Healthcare Supply Chain Collaborative
February 7-9, 2022 | Bonita Springs, FL
The Value of Contracting Standards Has Never Been Greater

Pricing management for healthcare products has long been complicated – and the influx of new suppliers and agreements during the COVID-19 pandemic has added to the complexity. So it’s more important than ever to take part in the industry event that drives standardization and best practices in contract administration. The Healthcare Supply Chain Collaborative’s Contract Administration Conference brings together contract administration professionals from across the healthcare supply chain – distributors, manufacturers, GPOs, and providers – all working to improve processes, reduce costs, and achieve pricing accuracy. If you’re involved in negotiating or administering pricing, chargebacks, or both – you need to attend!
