Indiana University Health recognizes and values the introduction of new products to its organization. Vendor requests for new product reviews may be initiated by direct communication with IU Health Supply Chain Operations.
Clinical Resource Manager schedules visits according to the area of coverage. If the request appears to have merit or requires clinical or technical expertise to evaluate, IU Health Supply Chain Operations will forward information to the appropriate value analysis committee representative for review. Department heads/directors or their designee may choose to initiate direct contact with vendors regarding a new product or need. If a vendor is asked to provide samples and is unsure of the appropriateness of the request, please contact IU Health Supply Chain Operations. Samples are expressly for use as demonstration and are not intended for use in patient care.
Please do not bring any product or equipment to IU Health facilities for trial without a purchase order number. Purchase order numbers may be obtained from IU Health Supply Chain Operations after approval for evaluation has been obtained through the value analysis process. Supplies or equipment brought into IU Health facilities without authorization from IU Health Supply Chain Operations should consider all such items a contribution/donation to IU Health. Prior to participation in any exhibits or product fairs, the vendor must have advance approval from IU Health Supply Chain Operations.
Note: All vendor representatives are required to complete vendor registration through Vendormate. Vendors will register offsite and sign in and out using the badge stations at each facility.
