Getting Everyone, Even Physicians, Involved
Colleen Norberg, Purchasing Manager for Ellis Medicine, said there were a lot of reasons why the hospital needed a credentialing programme. “Not only would it help our Purchasing Department control where vendor reps were going and who they were seeing, it would help improve patient safety demands by ensuring vendors have proper vaccinations and appropriate training.”
