About CMHS Vendor Management

August 2016

Community Memorial Health System (CMHS) is implementing an enhanced vendor management program effective September 1, 2016 to ensure a safe environment for patients, staff and guests.

CMHS requires all our vendors to register their company and representatives who will be accessing any of the CMHS facilities with our vendor credentialing partner Vendormate Credentialing, a GHX company. Your registration with Vendormate allows CMHS to credential your company and your representatives, to communicate our policies with you and to maintain your up-to-date information.

Your registration fee pays for Vendormate to collect, verify, and monitor your representatives’ credentials for one full year.  Only one annual fee per company will be charged.

Registration steps:

  1. Navigate to our vendor portal: https://cmhshealth.vendormate.com
  2. Register your company and your representatives by providing any requested documents and completing all requested policy acknowledgments on the Vendormate Credentialing Web site.  Each representative must complete a registration.
  3. Vendormate Credentialing will send a confirmation e-mail upon your submission.  Please reply to this email to confirm that your profile is complete.
  4. Notify your company’s representatives that they will have access to their profile on Vendormate Credentialing and can update their personal profile at any time.  It is the responsibility of the vendor to ensure the company registration and representative registrations are completed, including all required documents.

Everyone within the CMHS facilities is required to wear a badge indicating whether they are staff, physician, visitor or vendor.  Vendor access levels have been defined (low, medium and high) with specific registration requirements for each.  As a vendor, your badge will reflect the level of access for which you are approved and you will only be permitted in those areas within CMHS that permit your level of access.  

All representatives will be required to “check-in” at our Vendormate kiosk located in the CMH Main Lobby.  Effective October 15, 2016, a badge will print at the kiosk which will identify the representative’s access level.  All vendor representatives will be required to wear this badge while on site.  Prior to October 15, 2016, vendors will check in at the vendor kiosk and pick up their badge at our PBX window. 

If you have any questions about this new program, please call 805-652-4019.

Sincerely,
The Vendor Management Project Team
