How can MediTract help me stay organized and monitor my contracts? • MediTract allows you to search for all GRHealth agreements in a number of different ways. For instance, – You can search for contracts by vendor; – You can search contracts where you’re listed as the “responsible party”; – The contract summary page lists the term of the contract along with other pertinent information related to each agreement, but we’ll get to that. • If you’re a “responsible party”, MediTract will notify you when a contract is about to expire, but we’ll get to that too.

Send us your feedback here. What does it mean to be a “Responsible Party”, how is that determined, and what do I have access to? First Step: Contract Search Page-How do I find a particular contract? • This page will answer that particular question 99% of the time. Note the different Contract Search queries that you can run. Keyword Search: Abbott Contract Summary Page: “Give me the overview” How do I view the actual contract? That’s helpful, but I need a contract with “Medical Associates”, now what? Any questions about the contract? • Call the Office of Legal Affairs at 1-5709 That’s helpful for finding a completed contract, but what about one that I submitted for signature? Where’s that contract? • MeditTract Contract Collaborator Module – MediTract's Contract Collaborator® will automate your process of routing, reviewing and approving contracts. The contract originator uploads a contract template from the library, defines the list of reviewers, and sends out an email with a link to the document. The first reviewer adds his or her comments and the document gets automatically circulated to the list of reviewers. Once the review cycle is complete, the originator can finalize the contract. – Basically, Contract Collaborator can give you a “real-time snapshot” of your contract. Sticking with our last “Abbott Example”: Suppose I want to find an Abbott contract that I recently submitted. Very similar search process to your standard contract search. How about my Abbott agreement? (Keyword search: Abbott) Contract Collaborator Document Summary Page: The Snapshot The “Docs w/Comments” Tab Follow the Blue Document Link to see the agreement, revisions, and latest comments (You may look, but please don’t touch) Suppose I have a specific question and want to know who has my agreement; how do I find out that information?
