Webinar Replay: Keeping Pulse of Your Suppliers and Contracts Using Technology

To achieve a mandate of reducing non-labor expenditures by $10-12M, the University of Chicago Medicine (UCM) successfully deployed a source-to-pay (S2P) contract management technology platform. UCM is a 568-bed medical center, operating four hospitals and an ambulatory-care facility with revenues for patient care totaling $1.4 billion in fiscal 2014.

Hear from UCM’s David Spence how UCM implemented a cloud-based S2P contract management system, challenges and benefits, as well as his vision for the future of procurement. David will also share ‘how-to’ insights on:

  • Conducting a value analysis
  • Identifying key gaps in capability
  • Addressing those gaps with both process improvement and technology implementation
