Monday, September 11th, 2023 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT 

Consignment or "bill-only" implant orders can complicate procurement and invoicing processes. While standardization and automation can help drive savings and better visibility across hospital procurement and supplier fulfillment departments, many organizations continue to struggle to achieve these efficiencies.

In this live session, representatives from two key supply and provider organizations will share guidelines developed by a workgroup comprising over 40 contributors. They will highlight best practices, lessons learned and benefits of a simplified approach to consignment implant orders that uses minimal data for maximum automation.

Attendees will:
