- Clinical vendors who already are symplr members should go to www.symplr.com and login using their current user ID and password to register with Geisinger.
Clinical and pharmaceutical vendors must be fully credentialed within thirty (30) days of notification.
Clinical vendors wishing to visit departments, sections or clinics at Geisinger must have an appointment and, upon arrival on a Geisinger 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, are asked to leave their cell phones in the locker room area. Cell phones have a negative impact on some communication systems in our operating rooms areas and we vendors to be courteous of this rule.

Vendor Contracting – Ntracts
Geisinger uses a cloud-based CLM (contract lifecycle management) application called Ntracts, which enables automated workflows for the Geisinger contracting process. When vendors gain access to Ntracts, they receive an email containing onboarding information as well as a link for instructions specific to Geisinger on how to access and use the system.
