Improve Processes | Reduce Costs |
Achieve Pricing Accuracy

The Healthcare Supply Chain Collaborative’s seventh annual Contract Administration Conference brings together contract administration professionals from across the healthcare supply chain – distributors, manufacturers, GPOs, and providers – working together to improve processes, reduce costs, and achieve pricing accuracy. Participants gain ideas for improving their day-to-day methods and discover ways to collaborate with their trading partners to reduce pricing mistakes and rework. If you’re involved in negotiating or administering pricing, chargebacks, or both – you need to attend!
