The tool delivers a pool of credentialed suppliers, allowing buyers quickly to research and find the best vendors. It was designed to fill the gap between group purchasing organizations with 2,000 to 3,000 suppliers and standard search-engine queries, which deliver millions of results that might not be suitable for hospitals, surgical centers and physician practices. Medzo shifts the emphasis from searching to finding the right business partners, Vendormate said. It combines a database of more than 70,000 credentialed vendors and 48,000 healthcare providers across the U.S. Access to Medzo is free for hospitals, healthcare systems and other medical buyers. All vendor companies participating in the Vendormate Credential Manager credentialing system have a free basic listing in Medzo. Suppliers can enhance their profiles with an annual subscription.
