Supply chain

The University of Kansas Health System Supply Chain team is responsible for a variety of interconnected activities designed to ensure that the right product arrives at the right place at the right time, and at the right price and quantity. Our goal is to provide world-class services to our clinicians and the internal partners who support them.

Our top priority is to support exceptional care for every patient.

Vendor credentialing

The University of Kansas Health System has contracted with Green Security Services for vendor credentialing.

All vendors requiring access to The University of Kansas Health System facilities must be registered and obtain a badge from Green Security. Upon arriving at the health system facilities, you will need to scan your hard badge at one of the main security desks located in the Hospital facilities.

Green Security will provide the background screening and credentialing service for all health system vendors, service technicians, equipment installers, consultants, service reps, delivery reps, sales reps, etc. Green Security will also provide smartphone badges and hard badges that can be tracked through Green Security’s technology utilizing the QR scanning and tracking service. Vendors should wear badges so they can easily be seen by hospital personnel.

 

Annual cost

  • Level 2B (nonclinical vendor) - $275
  • Level 3 (clinical vendor) - $275

Other Fees

  • Green Security hard badge cost: $19.99 (mandatory)
  • RFID badge $30 (mandatory)
  • Smartphone badge app: FREE
    Download from iTunes or Google Play.

Process

A background screening will begin once the corresponding credential has been filled out and sent for processing. Business registrations are required prior to submitting an individual registration.

  • We encourage you to register at least 5-7 business days prior to arriving for work to ensure that you will receive your badge before you begin working on site.
  • A badge will be sent to you once you have been cleared and have submitted any additional credentialing requirements set by the health system.

Contact

Contact customer service for assistance if your business is not already registered with Green Security. Companies can also request to have company manager accounts established to manage all their vendors in the Green Security web portal. 

The Green Security customer service team will be happy to guide you through the transition. Please direct questions regarding credentialing to Green Security customer service.
