The University awarded a contract for purchase of medical forms and patient id bands .
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
For many years the Hospital utilizes a Novation/Vizient vendor for many medical forms and patient id bands. These multi-ply carbonless forms and patient bands are stored at the vendor?s site and delivered on an as needed basis. The volume fluctuates based upon staff and patient usage. Examples of the forms are: Consent to Anesthesia; Consent for Performance of Operation; and Surgical/Procedural Discharge Instructions. Examples of two patient bands are for: green for fall precautions and red bands for allergy alert.

This emergency request is needed as the vendor has refused to fill pending orders due to non-payment. The Hospital has been submitting medical forms and patient band orders without authority. Consequently, a Ratification request will be forthcoming.

Vizient contract reference number BP91043 with a term of 12/1/2009 through 12/31/2016 has not been submitted to the SPO/CPO for approval.
