We at AHRMM and the American Hospital Association (AHA) are tracking the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation daily, offering ongoing updates and the latest resources to the health care supply chain professionals. As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, AHRMM is working with the AHA and other AHA professional membership groups (PMGs), as well as members, public officials, personal protective equipment (PPE) vendors, donors, suppliers, and association and health care leaders to help address the challenges of the COVID-19 response.
Please bookmark this page and check back often as we continue to update this information daily.
AHRMM is collaborating with GHX using the same tools, expertise and processes leveraged by its Vendormate solutions to vet non-traditional suppliers offering PPE supplies. The Vendormate process has been in place for more than 15 years and is a trusted source of information to credential new vendors. The process includes information such as sanction searches, validating tax ids, reviewing financial snapshots and business licenses/certifications.
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.
If you used one or more vendors from this list, please take a brief survey to rate your experience so we can continue to improve this resource.

Resilinc announced the launch of The Exchange at Resilinc, an online platform for health care, where procurement groups interact with vetted peer organizations to identify, locate and exchange critical supply items. Each organization can list items they need and offer those they can spare in exchange. As the platform begins its rollout in mid-April, hospitals and first line health care providers experiencing supply shortages can submit requests for specific items and be matched with peer organizations who can supply those items. For a myriad of reasons, shortages occur across critical product categories. The COVID-19 pandemic is an especially relevant example where specific products are known to be in short supply. In collaboration with hospitals and other health care organizations, The Exchange at Resilinc provides the tools needed to help streamline supply shortage needs, allowing the health care community to respond to patient needs faster, more efficiently and at less cost. Joining The Exchange community is quick and easy. To get started, complete the pre-registration form.

AHRMM Recommendations on COVID-19 for Health Care Supply Chain
The American Hospital Association continues to report on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). First identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, the virus has spread globally with more than 6,000 associated deaths.
AHRMM is engaged with numerous health care leaders, associations, and regulatory agencies in an effort to keep our members up-to-date on the latest activities surrounding COVID-19. We are working very closely with Strategic Marketplace Initiative (SMI), Health Industry Distributors Association (HIDA), Institute for Supply Management, ECRI as well as AHA professional membership groups to support health care supply chain’s preparation and response to COVID-19. A few items to note in light of this public health concern:
- Blood supplies were tight prior to the outbreak. Supply chain professionals should work closely with their clinical and laboratory staff in the conservation and management of blood products post outbreak. Review AABB's Tips for Hospitals – Extending the Blood Supply.
- Review and implement CDC recommended guidance for the extended use and limited reuse of N95 filtering face piece respirators in health care setting.
- Strategic National Stockpile is the nation’s largest supply of potentially life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for use in a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out. For further questions or information about the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Review the EPAs approved list of disinfectants that meet EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.
- On March 2, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for emergency use of all disposable filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs) approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
- Those who also oversee environmental services should review the Association for the Health Care Environment’s (AHE) COVID-19 Resources.
Only through ongoing collaboration and communication efforts with your suppliers and other resources, understanding product shortages and allocations you may be facing or expect to face, and identifying and implementing conservation measures can we hope to minimize supply disruptions and ensure uninterrupted patient care.
AHRMM Connect, our online member-only community, is the ideal place to pose questions or update other health care supply chain professionals on how your organization is handling this threat.
AHA Updates and Resources
