Streamline your healthcare supply chain management with compliant vendor

Vulnerable facility access points

Safe facility access now applies to in-person, virtual, and hybrid vendor interactions. These requirements make it harder for organizations to monitor the full spectrum of vendor activity.

The sheer volume of contracts that we need to manage is overwhelming. I also review contracts that come through supply chain, and if I didn’t have symplr, it would be very difficult to keep up with the volume coming through every day. I save at least 10-15 hours a week since everything is in one place, and I don’t have to track down contracts anymore. Having it in one place allows us to easily control and maintain proper oversight.
