To ensure the system imports and routes invoices correctly, and to avoid delayed payments, it is important that vendors follow certain guidelines in addressing and submitting invoices.
What is a single-use password?
A single-use password is a secret access code that is valid for only one session, which means the access will be invalid after that session. This single-use password is received by the phone number provided during enrollment and can be received by SMS voice or text message.
If I begin using a different phone number, will I need to re-enroll?
Yes. If you change phone numbers, you must update the information. The phone number is enrolled so that it can receive single-use passwords for logging in to OWA remotely. Please call the Sutter Health Vendor line at (916) 297-9300 to update phone numbers on Vendor Portal accounts that are already enrolled.
