Contract Lifecycle Management | symplr Contract
Manage contracts efficiently and compliantly
Manage active and historical contracts, terms, approvals, and expirations for physicians and BAAs, vendors, materials, lease agreements, and more.
Track compliance and derive value from all contractual relationships
Contract management is complex, costly, and resource dependent
At any given time, health systems are managing thousands of contracts and subscriptions, each with its own negotiations, approvals, and compliance requirements.
Protect your organization from risk while recovering value
Without an automated, centralized solution, organizations lack visibility over their entire contract portfolio and risk compliance penalties and contract mismanagement. Contract management in healthcare differs radically from other industries, so a tailored, unique solution is critical to safeguard against risk and preserve resources, ensuring no revenue is left on the table.
The cost of non-compliance is high—but avoidable
Without the right governance and data, organizations open the door to potential fines such as:
- $50,000 civil fines and $25,000 criminal fines for violations of the Anti-Kickback Statute.
- Business Associates who violate HIPAA may be subject to penalties of up to $50,000 per violation.
- Stark Law civil penalties can reach up to $15,000, and willful circumvention penalties can be upwards of $100,000.
