Vendor Credentialing (VC) is the process of qualifying vendors by assessing their background and legitimacy against criteria set within the Nationals Vendor Credentialing Standard. The credentialing process is required for vendors who wish to call on restricted areas of Canadian healthcare facilities.

The Vendor Credentialing Access Membership has been created for Providers who have endorsed the HSCN National Standard for Vendor Credentialing. Access provides healthcare facility providers with the ability to view a list of Vendor Organizations who have attested that their representatives have met the requirements of the National Standard.
