In 2013 HSCN unveiled the National Standard for Vendor Credentialing and an accompanying registry to the healthcare supply chain industry.  Its development was based on supporting the needs of patients and healthcare providers while ensuring the process and requirements for healthcare representatives met legal standards around human rights, labour rights and personal privacy laws. The HSCN National Standard is unique because it was developed collaboratively with health care providers and suppliers from across Canada. It respects our unique health care system with a non-profit approach to promote sound policies for safety and security.
In recognition of the value HSCN members place on the safety and protection of our healthcare professionals and our patients, HSCN, in collaboration with Rx&D has launched a web-based on- line training program on the National Standard for Vendor Credentialing for members and other professionals within the industry.
This comprehensive on-line training program, available in both English and French, is designed using an intuitive learning platform that meets the principles of adult learning, and is based on a series of practical case based learning modules. The program is designed to build better understanding and compliance with HSCN’s National Standard for Vendor Credentialing and to ensure the privacy and safety of patients, healthcare professionals and healthcare representatives.
