How does vendor management benefit my organization?
Vendor management programs result in both hard and soft dollar savings. Clients save time dealing with the operations of staffing with third parties and are able to focus on more productive internal items.

With PPR’s focused oversight credentialing liabilities and invoicing overpayments are decreased.
What types of candidates are able to be sourced?
PPR’s Vendor Solutions can source all types of healthcare industry professionals. A robust network of affiliate providers that specialize in many different areas of the healthcare labor market will provide both leadership and entry level candidates as well as clinical and non-clinical candidates.
What does implementation of this program look like?
Depending on the size of your organization and scope of services requested, implementation can be a 30-90 day period. PPR will work with you to design an order requisition and fulfillment plan designed to gain the highest efficiencies throughout the vendor management process.
What happens to the current agencies and candidates we work with?
Current agency contract assignments already confirmed or underway will finish out under the orignial terms. After the go live date, any new a contract assignments or extensions will be processed through the VMS process.
How are the open orders sent out and communicated to the network of agencies?
PPR will communicate the orders out to the network via a proprietary system called Beacon123.com . Beacon is a web based tool that helps PPR process candidates and credentialing of contingent and permanent staff. The system does not replace vendor direct communication with PPR but augments the process for efficiency.
