How Northwestern Medicine’s New Supplier Portal Promotes Compliance and Automates Strategic Initiatives

Share

On-demand Webinar | Free

Northwestern Medicine is one of the leading healthcare organizations in the nation, with 10 hospitals, 30,000 employees and more than 20 million suppliers. The organization recently adopted a new supplier portal from APEX Analytix to ensure vendors comply with both industry regulations and Northwestern’s corporate programs.

During this webinar, AP Manager Amy Platis describes how her team selected a portal platform that accomplished her organization’s objectives – and self-funded it using the savings it generated.

What you will learn:

  • How portal technology can help you achieve a clean vendor master file and provide a solid foundation for P2P
  • The many benefits of automating supplier information management– from improved controls to a dramatic reduction in supplier inquiries
  • How portal-based dynamic discounting and supplier statement audits have helped Northwestern self-fund its portal
  • The steps Northwestern took to customize its portal and ensure a smooth deployment

Join us for a demo and expanded version of Amy’s presentation during IOFM’s Spring Conference & Expo at Walt Disney World in Florida.
