NEW Contract Lifecycle Management Solution

Member-driven Initiative | Best-In-Class Tested Technology

After a lengthy evaluation process involving IHA member insight, UISS has partnered with Ntracts, a contract lifecycle management software-as-a-service application exclusively focused on healthcare that enables users to originate, search for and report on contracts.

This member-driven initiative helps support the organizational management of contracts and allows our members to:

  • Mitigate Risk of Non-Compliance – Ntracts’ CLM platform creates a single source of truth for all contracts and streamlines workflows. Healthcare organizations can easily monitor compliance with provider, vendor and payer contracts, reducing the risk of an inspection by the OIG, DNV, Joint Commission and other accreditation agencies.
  • Gain Efficiency – Ntracts users have measured an average of 25% improvements in efficiency when utilizing Ntracts’ CLM workflows to seamlessly handle their contracts’ lifecycle from initial request and document generation, to approval, signature, subsequent reviews, amendments, and termination.
  • Increase Visibility – Give financial teams immediate access to real-time information. Enabling data-driven, informed decisions.
  • Reduce Costs – According to experts, companies lose an average of 9% annual revenue due to contract mismanagement. Ntracts’ built-in notifications and advanced reporting add to your bottom line by avoiding unintended auto-renewals, avoiding or reducing contract overpayments, and eliminating payments on expired contracts.
  • 100% Implementation Success – Efficient implementation process completed by healthcare experts with minimal client resources.
  • Partnership – Ntracts becomes a partner of the healthcare organization’s contract and compliance programs and part of their users’ day-to-day.
