GHX's Vendormate Kiosk Wins 2022 "Compliance Management Innovation" from the MedTech Breakthrough Awards

Designed with COVID-19 Safety in Mind, the Kiosk Offers an Integrated Digital Solution for Healthcare Facility Access Management

LOUISVILLE, Colo., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) announces that its Vendormate Kiosk has been selected as the "Compliance Management Innovation" winner by the 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. GHX Vendormate's self-service Kiosk offers a more efficient facility access experience, helping health systems create safer spaces for patients, staff, visitors and vendors.

In 2021, GHX introduced the Vendormate Kiosk, an integrated mobile app and kiosk solution that offers vendor and visitor check-in with contact-free vendor options for health systems. The Kiosk was redesigned amid the pandemic to help health systems better meet evolving credentialing compliance and visitor management goals.

Enhanced features include:

  • COVID-19 Safety: Contact-free check-in options for vendors using QR technology, wellness declarations and an integrated thermometer help meet current and prepare for future compliance and infection control protocols.
  • Expanded Visitor Management Capabilities: Barcode technology allows visitors to scan their driver's license for faster check-in and records which patient they are visiting.
  • Flexibility: A single solution that can be configured for visitors, vendors or both, reducing the complexity of maintaining multiple kiosk solutions.
  • Advanced Technology: Geo-location services in the app senses when a vendor representative arrives and also sends a reminder to check out. An integrated camera includes facial-boundary detection to help users better align for temperature sensing and badge photos.
  • Data Visibility: Dashboards support visitor watch lists and alerts and enable detailed reporting.

"Health systems are incredibly concerned about safety and security, infection control and improved compliance," said Chrystie Leonard, General Manager, GHX Vendormate. "Our team was uniquely positioned to address the need for facility access badging compliance by quickly innovating on a single kiosk design that addresses facility check-in for both vendors and visitors.
