Vendor Value Analysis Consulting (Vendor-VAC) is represented by an online website created programmatically by Scarlett’s Web, Inc., at https://vendor-vac. This site has been developed to assist healthcare vendors who are seeking to properly market and present their products and/or services in a healthcare environment. Although vendors obtain personal visitation certifications in order to frequent a medical facility, their products and/or services must also be reviewed and technically certified via a defined criteria to be eligible for purchase. These standards are varied but specific to each organization and include assessment routes that fluctuate according to location and management. These diverse evaluation processes, policies, and procedures are the ones Vendor-VAC was designed to address. With information and recommendations offered to vendors, clinicians, and facilities, it also extends possibilities for standardizations and cost savings within healthcare supply expenses. By participants accessing the available website information, all interested parties can examine possible solutions and data on a specific topic and/or medical product/service they are seeking to have reviewed.
