Medical Supply Chain Professionals Collaborate To Improve Contracting Practices 

Upcoming Contract Administration conference aims to increase pricing accuracy


Alexandria, VA – January 24, 2022 – Creating and implementing a successful medical products contract takes education and collaboration throughout the supply chain. HIDA’s 7th annual Contract Administration Conference advances this collaboration by bringing together contract administration professionals from distributors, manufacturers, GPOs, and healthcare providers. Together, they work to improve processes, reduce costs, and achieve pricing accuracy.

These discussions are more important than ever in today’s environment of transportation delays, worker shortages, and an often overburdened healthcare system.
This working event includes interactive roundtable discussions enabling attendees to share perspectives on common challenges and advance adoption of industry-wide best practices. Topics at the 2022 conference include:

Creating Smarter Contracts: The First Step to Pricing Accuracy
Best Practices for Maintaining GPO Memberships
Creating Efficiencies by Automating and Centralizing the RFP Process
Managing “Ship-to / Sold-to” Challenges
Leveraging Third-party Identifiers to Improve Customer Identification

The Contract Administration Conference will be held February 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, Florida. Speakers include experts from 3M Health Care, BD, Cardinal Health, GHX, Johnson & Johnson, NDC, ValueCentric, and many others. View the full agenda here.
