Vendor credentialing requires health products vendors to meet varying criteria to do business with healthcare institutions. While certain institutions may require ID Badges, vaccination documentation, criminal background checks, HIPAA compliance and/or fees, there is little consistency on such requirements across providers.
HIDA is working with public-private partnerships to establish effective vendor credentialing standards that strengthen patient safety and makes the credentialing process more efficient. Further information can be found on the website for Coalition for Best Practices in HCIR Requirements: www.hcirbestpractice.org.
