The Consortium for Universal Healthcare Credentialing. Inc. (C4UHC) announced its suggested guidelines for tuberculosis (TB) testing for medical suppliers providing healthcare products and services to care facilities.
Erin Bass, a partner at Dentons, the largest law firm globally, discusses her role in advising employers across the United States on complying with a myriad of employment laws with C4UHC Executive Director, Sharon Gleason, Ed.D.
In 2022, 90% of hospitals and clinics required credentials for medical industry representatives entering their facilities, according to NMS Health. Fulfilling these requirements costs millions of dollars and labor hours because most of those healthcare centers don’t adhere to one national set of vendor credentialing standards such as the ANSI NEMA SC-1 2020 American National Standard for Supplier Credentialing in Healthcare.
Eric Berlin, one of the leading cannabis lawyers in the U.S. with Dentons, the largest law firm in the world, says in his interview with C4UHC Executive Director, Sharon Gleason, Ed.D., hospitals and medical centers need to recognize the disruptive impact that legal cannabis is having on employee and vendor testing.
A recent government report on medical providers’ progress in adopting electronic health records (EHR) reflects how establishing standards is a challenge throughout the healthcare ecosystem, not just in vendor credentialing of medical suppliers.
Bradley Adams, Supplier Access Specialist in the Supply Chain Organization of Intermountain Healthcare (IMH), talks about his experience in supply chain management and his thoughts on vendor credentialing.
