That’s why symplr® is pleased to have the opportunity to celebrate them during National Health Care Supply Chain Week, October 6 – 12. As a leading healthcare vendor credentialing provider, we have the privilege of working with supply chain professionals every day. Over the years, we’ve seen their roles transform.

Vendor credentialing is the process hospital administrators go through of vetting third-party suppliers and sales reps before purchasing items or services from them. It’s a key part of an administrator’s responsibility to ensure that rules and regulations are maintained, both for the protection of patients and a hospital’s resources. Vendor credentialing is typically managed by the organization’s supply chain department, and is driven by directors of supply chain or materials management. However, administrators of vendor credentialing can include many people within a facility - basically anyone responsible for managing access to the facility or maintaining relationships with vendors.
