Presbyterian’s vendor and contractors are an essential part of our process for delivering healthcare products and services. Therefore, we seek mutually beneficial partnerships that focus on quality. Those selected to enter into a contract with Presbyterian to supply goods and/or services should review the vendor and contracting requirements as outlined below.
Vendors considered “high risk” must register in the Presbyterian vendor registration program as outlined in the section below.
High-risk Vendor Registration Program
The vendor registration program is designed to streamline the collection and management of key vendor credentialing information. Specifically, the system performs certain background checks and captures certain information that we need to comply with federal regulation and hospital accreditation standards.
Who Must Register?
You are required to register in our vendor credentialing program if you are a sales representative for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, or hospital equipment and supply industry and will be visiting a Presbyterian hospital or healthcare delivery facility.
During the contracting process, high-risk vendors must register with Vendormate® Credentialing, a third party platform operated under a service contract with Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX). For more detailed information on the Presbyterian Healthcare Services Vendor Registration Program, please read our
An annual registration fee is required for any company registering. The fee is paid to GHX and is used to cover the cost of their credentialing operations.
Vendors should not register with Vendormate until contract negotiation has begun. Being registered will not guarantee or imply promise that Presbyterian will do business with a vendor. For technical assistance with registration or payment, contact customer support at (800) 968-7449 or submit a ticket at http://ghx.com/customer-care/.
