September 16, 2021
HOUSTON, TX – September 16, 2021 – symplr®, a global leader in enterprise healthcare operations, including governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC), today announced a partnership with Accesa Labs, a leading provider of technology-enabled regulatory- and wellness-based testing and scheduling services. The integrated online offering creates a streamlined approach to fulfill vendor credentialing requirements, accelerating the process of obtaining and reporting medical lab test results. As a result, healthcare vendors will have faster, unobstructed, and compliant access to customers.
From providing supplies and maintenance to assisting in surgical procedures, vendors play an essential role in the healthcare ecosystem. Granting vendor access to the locations and people who need them most, in a timely manner, is crucial to maintaining operations and quality patient outcomes.
With access to more than 3,000 testing locations through internet-based ordering, Accesa Labs' technology provides vendors fast, efficient access to quality medical lab testing and results. Now that Accesa Labs and symplr have joined forces, vendors can easily and securely share their lab results directly to the symplr Access vendor credentialing solution with a few clicks. The direct lab-to-platform experience minimizes delays, ensures accuracy of results, and creates a streamlined, compliant approach to satisfy healthcare organizations' applicable lab-based vendor credentialing requirements.
"Vendor credentialing has long played an important role in protecting patients and minimizing business risks for healthcare organizations. Historically, however, the process has been siloed, manual, and inefficient, resulting in lost time and money. Partnering with Accesa Labs accelerates the entire process by quickly green-lighting compliant vendors for access," said Peggy Drew, Sr. Director, Product Management at symplr.
"We are excited to work with symplr on this partnership that directly serves the needs of our common customers. The COVID-19 pandemic has driven home our focus on leveraging technology to improve traditional processes in healthcare. The integration with symplr helps create a more connected and safer healthcare experience," said Matthew Williamson, co-founder of Accesa Labs.
symplr Access enables organizations to easily manage vendors and visitors across an entire health system or a single facility. The symplr team works with healthcare systems to determine best-practice credentials, policies, and training sessions for each level of access. Additionally, symplr's mobile app makes it easy for compliant vendors to access check in, schedule appointments, and manage their accounts, regardless of location. The system's real-time data log reporting satisfies auditing requirements of accreditation bodies.
