How to Set Up an Emergency Overflow Facilitycreated: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 updated: Monday, April 06, 2020
As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise, healthcare system resources are being stretched to a breaking point. Should hospitals need to set up emergency overflow facilities to continue to treat patients, GHX has created a simple process to ensure medical supplies reach the new location quickly.
For healthcare providers: To add a new emergency facility location to your GHX account, please coordinate with your organization’s Supply Chain team. If you still have questions, you can reach out to GHX at email@example.com. It is recommended that you work with your distributor/supplier directly to coordinate the account number to be used.
For distributors/suppliers: GHX strongly recommends following the standard process and monitoring GHX Registration Center for newly created accounts to ensure they are immediately enabled. To ensure there are no delays in delivering needed supplies to a new facility, GHX will process these requests after hours or over the weekend. Note transactions will not be processed unless the account is accepted by the distributor/supplier.
