Helping Out With The Joint Commission Visit

Maine Medical Center has been live with its Vendormate-based vendor program for just 9 months.   We recently received this note from its associate director of materials management.


“We had the JC here 2 weeks ago. In one of the O.R. tracers, they wanted to know about a vendor. The O.R. leader knew to call me. I went over and showed them Vendormate and what we had in the system for this vendor. We passed that with flying colors.”

It’s an example of what Laura Smith, associate project director for the Joint Commission’s division of standards and survey methods, said at an IMDA conference recently.   The Joint Commission standards relating to vendors are focusing on patient safety.  


After all, where do patients and vendor representatives come closer to each than the O.R.?

Entry filed under: Joint Commission, vendor credentials.
