Negotiating and communicating contract offers typically involve a cumbersome set of manual steps. GHX Collaboration Portal helps streamline this process for all parties through a central, neutral application with automatic alerts and ongoing communications. Suppliers using Collaboration Portal gain efficiencies in operationalizing GPO contracts, allowing them to drive value from the contract itself rather than spend time administering the contract.
Collaboration Portal enables the entire healthcare supply chain—manufacturers, distributors, providers and group purchasing organizations—to work together throughout the contract and price activation process. The application offers a collaborative workflow that includes publishing and approving letters of commitment (LOC) − aligning GPO roster information with customer data − as well as proactive alerts, detailed history, eligibility confirmation and price activation synchronization. With Collaboration Portal, a contract can be integrated with a distributor on the same day it's executed and communicated to all parties via the application.
