Geisinger Health System has implemented a vendor program to ensure that patient care is not influenced by consideration other than what is best for the patients of GHS. All GHS vendors are expected to become familiar with:
Vendors are expected to uphold all guidelines set forth within each document. These documents may be updated from time to time.
In addition, GHS has enacted further requirements for clinical vendors (as defined in Section IV of the Vendor Policy and Procedure) in the form of vendor credentialing, which is managed through Symplr Vendor Credentialing (SVC). These requirements have been put in place to better control vendor access and to help validate that all such vendors are appropriately trained, authorized and insured by their employer, further ensuring the safety of the patients, staff, visitors and vendors of Geisinger Health System.
Clinical and pharmaceutical vendors must be fully credentialed within thirty (30) days of notification.
Clinical vendors wishing to visit departments, sections or clinics at GHS must have an appointment and, upon arrival on a GHS property, will report to the appropriate Clinical Vendor Registration Area between 6 a.m. - 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Vendors who are checking in to Geisinger's Surgical Suites, we ask you to leave your cell phones in the locker room area. Cell phones have a negative impact on some of communication systems in our OR areas and we ask you to please be courteous of this rule.
