Project Details

Client had a longstanding relationship with a vendor that had expanded one hospital division at a time, leading to 50+ disparate contract agreements that lacked standard terms or pricing. InfoWorks was hired to manage a relationship review and optimization process.

InfoWorks led an RFI project to validate that the client was partnered with a vendor who met its business requirements. Our project manager interfaced with legal, marketing, technology, and vendor stakeholders to transition and consolidate all agreements to client’s standardized legal templates, moving from 54 contracts to 6. Our team negotiated 75 Service Level Agreements to hold the vendor accountable for contract delivery. We also established a process where Service Level Agreements were continually revisited in Quarterly Business Reviews, strengthening the relationship on both sides.

Consolidating contracts and implementing a Quarterly Business Review process for Service Level Agreements resulted in $4M in cost savings across the organization.
