An Important COVID-19 Resource Update: AHRMM Is Vetting Non-Traditional Suppliers Offering PPE and Other Critical Supplies

AHRMM is vetting non-traditional suppliers offering personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical supplies for the health care supply chain. Please bookmark this page ahrmm.org/COVID-19 and check back often as we continue to update this list daily.

Browse the Suppliers >>

All suppliers are being reviewed through the Vendormate solution using the Fraud Abuse Control Information Systems (FACIS) Level 1M search which is considered the minimal “best practice” and includes all federal level data. Searches are being performed against agency sources of information including Office of the Inspector General (OIG), System for Award Management (SAM), and the FDA. FACIS Level 1M also includes state level Federal Healthcare Entitlement Program (FHEP) related data. This includes information such as state offices of the Medicaid Inspector General or equivalent state’s Attorneys General, the Medicaid Healthcare Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (“HEAT”) content and any state level contractor or procurement debarment data.

The listing of these suppliers or their products is for informational purposes only, and in no way constitutes or should be viewed as an endorsement by AHRMM or the American Hospital Association. AHRMM strongly recommends that you follow your organizations vendor review and approval policies and procedures.
