Nursing home networks face a unique set of challenges around healthcare contract management. Since they are subject to strict laws and regulations, nursing homes need to be vigilant when establishing and maintaining contracts - as to avoid litigation costs, witness depositions, and the frantic retrieval of mismanaged contracts. With disorganized or manual processes, nursing homes increase the risk of lawsuits, misplaced documents, data entry errors, contract lifecycle bottlenecks, damaged reputation, wasted time, and revenue loss. Luckily, contract management software can help nursing home networks establish a seamless contract lifecycle, remain compliant, reduce wasted time, unify and secure documents, efficiently and accurately enter data, and manage contracts with varying complexity and volume. Here’s how.
There is a significant need for automation in contract management software processes. When collaborating within the contract management community, we often find that most organizations do not currently leverage meaningful automation for better contract management. Yet, most organizations have developed or plan to develop strategies to implement contract automation. It is clear to see that the industry is evolving in favor of contract automation. Don't get left behind. Get ahead with robust and user-friendly contract management software. Here's how.
How many steps should be in a contract workflow?
The correct answer is: It’s dependent on your organization’s needs.
There is no set number of tasks for a “perfect workflow”. You must determine what steps are necessary and in what order they should be executed, establishing the best workflow for your organization to achieve CLM (contract lifecycle management) success.
Creating a contract is not typically a cut and dry process. A contract may have to complete many internal processes before completion. These processes can be based on contract status, budget, and type to trigger a workflow in a contract management system. Without automated workflows, processes can be time consuming and mistakes can be made. Forget having to manually drop off a contract or make sure it is attached to an email, automated workflows are here to do that for you.
