Christus Health is one of the top ten Catholic health systems in the US that has 350 services and facilities. The company sought a contract management solution from LANSA business partner Rippe & Kingston. The company picked up essential Contract Guardian as the contract management solution, which was built with LANSA to create a browser-based solution. This solution could be deployed across multiple platforms in-house or on a SaaS basis. The healthcare company implemented the solution in a Windows environment at its Houston data center. Christus launched the Unity Project in 2004 to create uniform clinical, business and financial processes across its facilities. Hospitals of the company started with moving to a single Healthcare Information System (HIS) Meditech. With the use of this solution, all documents, images, email messages and meeting notes related to the agreement can be collated in Contract Guardian. They can them be attached to the agreement. It is also easy to assign contract results in the system. This includes sending e-mail messages and posting them onto the journal. Contract Guardian provided advanced search and bookmark facilities. This included journaling that helped users to minimize the risk of non-compliance. It also reduced the need for paper and the problems of misfiling because they don't have to email or copy them.
