Vendor Compliance

Vendor Letter

Dear Vendor Representative:

Thank you for your interest in doing business with Henry Ford Health System (HFHS).

One of the requirements of the HFHS vendor policy is registration through Vendormate® and a review of our vendor orientation/educational training materials. This program is designed to ensure that all vendors interested in visiting a Henry Ford location are knowledgeable regarding all HFHS policies, procedures, and requirements including those addressing privacy and confidentiality. You can find the vendor policies at register under HFHS. In addition, any vendor representative participating in or observing a clinical procedure will have additional requirements related to health and safety.

Once your registration has been completed and all requirements have been met, please email to receive an approval and instructions on when and where to obtain your HFHS issued photo ID badge. Vendor Representatives who were previously issued the HFHS ‘green’ photo ID badge do not need to acquire a new badge. In addition, due to the tracking of vendor representative records in Vendormate, we will no longer issue annual expiration stickers.

Vendor Representatives who wish to visit with a HFHS staff member must either request an appointment via or receive an appointment request via Vendormate from a HFHS staff member. You have the option of printing your appointment confirmation and visitation badge remotely prior to arrival, or accessing one of our Vendormate onsite kiosk units to print a copy of your appointment confirmation and visitation badge. Kiosk units are currently only available at Henry Ford Hospital – Detroit; Wyandotte; Macomb or West Bloomfield.

Henry Ford Health System appreciates your help in creating a safer environment for our patients and employees. As always, we appreciate your commitment to the quality and integrity of the health care industry.
