Supply Chain Management


The University of Toledo Medical Center has chosen Vendormate as it’s online credentialing and badging solution for suppliers who frequent patient care areas when visiting the medical center.  

The system allows suppliers to upload current vaccinations and attest to reading our policies of importance which include information as established by AORN, CMS, the Joint Commission as well as UTMC’s departments of surgery, risk management, safety and health, infection control and supply chain.  The badges are thermal sensitive and will expire after 24 hours.   Check in and wearing of this badge must occur each time upon entry to the hospital or clinics. 

There are 3 self-service badging kiosks located at the:

  • Entrance corridor of the George Isaac Minimally Invasive Clinic
  • Entrance to the Medical Pavilion
  • Operating Room main desk on the 2nd floor of the hospital

Suppliers who enter a department without checking in and displaying proper ID will be asked to return to a designated area to check in.   Suppliers who are non-compliant with documentation or acknowledgment of policies will receive two (2) warnings when their temporary badge is created.   On the third visitation attempt, the system will preclude a badge from being printed and access to clinical areas will be denied.

Suppliers who are granted UT issued identification badges (those vendors who frequent procedural areas) are still required to check in at a Vendormate kiosk upon arrival to campus and display the printed badge.

Registration for badging and credentialing can be accessed using the following link.
