Prodigo Contract Management: After diligently researching “off-the-shelf” contracting solutions, Boston Children’s Hospital’s Supply Chain Management department decided to form a multi-disciplinary project team to co-develop a leading-edge healthcare-centric contract workflow solution with Prodigo Solutions, called ProdigoContracts. This system would significantly improve cross-departmental usability, as well as streamline the overall contract management process. Supply Chain Management concurrently set out to eliminate off-contract purchases to help control the cost of supplies, including improved utilization of its Intalere GPO contracts. This contract management module manages users and approval workflows, accounts for distributor markups, and highlights rebate opportunities, amongst other features.
