Critical Vendor or Critical FUNCTION?

Apr 28, 16 Critical Vendor or Critical FUNCTION?

You have HOW MANY critical vendors?!?!?!?!? While building a vendor management program for a new client a couple of weeks ago, we worked with the various business units to identify the vendors that they do business with, reconcile against the AP system, categorize them, risk rate them, include/exclude from the vendor inventory based on inherent risk and define which ones were critical. Classic approach taken by Certified Regulatory Vendor Program Managers (CRVPM). I always find the perception of CRITICAL to be very interesting. We reviewed departmental Business Impact Analyses (BIA’s) to understand which functions were critical and then looked at which vendors the departments depended on and considered critical. Interestingly, Citrix and Cisco were noted as critical vendors. The institution’s IT department supported Citrix themselves.

In the medical field, there are various positions that are important to a hospital or surgical facility. Everyone that works in healthcare plays a role in providing patients with the care they need. From the physicians that provide their care to Sterile Processing Technicians (SPT) that sterilize the instruments used during surgery, they all play a vital role. In the past 3 years, Sterile Processing Department (SPD) personnel were not required to have any certification with specific education or training to perform these critical tasks. However, more states are starting to require technicians to be certified to perform the job. Most hospitals and healthcare facilities are now only hiring certified technicians in order to maintain their accreditation and agency compliance. If you are one of the numerous personnel that work in SPD or Central Services departments, you can advance your career and secure your job with a course in sterile processing training online.
