Healthcare Vendors & Vendormate
TTUHSC has entered into an agreement with Vendormate to provide registration, education, screening and credentialing of health care vendors subject to HSC OP 52.16 Health Care Vendor Interactions. Vendormate also maintains an online repository of required vendor data and provides a platform to generate real-time vendor ID badge. Any health care vendors seeking access to TTUHSC facilities, clinics, faculty or residents shall register with Vendormate (new vendor registration https://registersupplier.ghx.com/reg/network/vendor/ ) before their visit and sign in and obtain a badge at the time of the visit.
Vendormate has added a new feature to its sign in process called “digital badging”. Digital badging allows vendors to generate a digital badge on their phone when they visit a clinic that does not have a physical Vendormate kiosk station. Click here to see a list of locations that digital badging has been implemented. Vendormate does not currently have the capability to offer the digital badging option if a kiosk sign in station is available. Therefore, vendors that visit the Lubbock main campus (TTUHSC clinics, Texas Tech Physicians Medical Pavilion, and the Center for Cardiovascular Health) still need to sign in and obtain a printed badge at the front desk of the Pavilion.
Please be aware that all vendors visiting TTUHSC clinics must have either a printed or a digital badge. If a vendor is having trouble signing up with Vendormate or has any questions regarding TTUHSC’s vendor management process, they may contact the Office of Institutional Compliance at 806-743-4228.
Health care vendor is any individual or company that sells or markets health care services or items to TTUHSC and/or its patients, including, but not limited to pharmaceutical companies and their representatives, device or durable medical equipment (DME) manufacturers and their representatives, and equipment and/or service providers, and their representatives.
TTUHSC has contracted with Vendormate, a vendor credentialing company, to provide education, maintain an online repository of required vendor data, and provide a tool to generate real-time badges for proper vendor registration.
Any health care vendor seeking access to TTUHSC facilities, clinics, faculty or residents shall register with Vendormate before their representatives are allowed onto a TTUHSC campus, site, or facility. Health care vendors are required to check in and receive a printed or digital badge each time they enter a TTUHSC facility, clinic, office and/or department. The Vendormate physical check-in station at the Lubbock main campus is located at the front desk of the Texas Tech Physicians Medical Pavilion, where printed badges are generated. All other locations listed in this memo should utilize the digital badging system (badges viewed on the vendor’s mobile devices).
Employees should require vendors to register with Vendormate before agreeing to meet with them or allowing them onto TTUHSC premises. At the Lubbock main campus, Texas Tech Physicians Medical Pavilion, and the Center for Cardiovascular Health, vendors should wear their Vendormate badges at all times. At other locations where digital badging is implemented, vendors should obtain the digital badge on their phone and present it to TTUHSC staff.
If you are a vendor and you have questions regarding registration with Vendormate, please contact Vendormate directly.
