ATLANTA, Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Vendormate, the vendor relations expert for healthcare, will present Vendormate VISION, its vendor management and compliance monitoring solution, at the Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management's (AHRMM) 45th Annual Conference and Exhibition in San Diego, California August 12 through August 15, 2007.

The AHRMM Conference and Exhibition is the premier educational and networking event for healthcare supply chain professionals. Professionals from around the nation meet to stay updated on current industry trends and learn from national experts in the healthcare and materials management field. More than 60 educational sessions will address a wide variety of materials management topics including distribution, finance, purchasing, technology, strategic planning, clinical resource management and professional development. Hot topics include RFID applications, cost containment, vendor management and compliance tracking, and going "green" in healthcare environments.

"Materials and cost management are top issues for healthcare providers. We've experienced growing interest in our vendor management solutions as materials managers across the U.S. look to streamline and simplify their operations in order to continually deliver the best patient care. The AHRMM conference is an outstanding place for us to meet with other industry leaders," said Andy Monin, Vendormate Chairman and CEO.

Hospitals typically rely on thousands of vendors to provide services and supplies. With growing interest in security, safety, access control, and ethics compliance, healthcare systems can be flooded with documentation requirements. Vendormate will present Vendormate VISION which allows healthcare systems to keep track of all their vendors - from profiles to certificates and licenses to individual access badges - from one system. Vendormate VISION registers vendors, screens them based on public and private records and government watch lists, and ensures compliance with corporate policies. The system then continuously monitors vendor business and representative data, alerting the healthcare system to any change in status.
