The report is important because:
There is a section on the top ten key findings (with comparative information from our last survey, published in 2017). Additionally, there is a section on credentialing metrics, where you will find out what your colleagues are doing in their organization. For example, how long, on average, does it take to perform primary source verification on an initial application? You’ll find that information on page 29. You’ll find out that 18.5% of organizations have standardized their privileges across the health system (that’s on page 27). And there is much more. We hope that you will find this report to be of value and would appreciate any comments you might have about the findings.
And don’t forget – we will be doing this again at the end of 2018 so plan on participating in the next survey if you were unable to do so for this one.
The report was published on May 2, 2018 and is the result of a survey conducted of Medical Services Professionals and others responsible for credentialing during December 2017 and January 2018. Many thanks to VerityStream staff Lisa Rothmuller and Mark Westbrook, PMP, Senior Directors, Client Success Services and Consulting, and HealthStream staff Randy Carden, Ed.D., Senior Research Consultant, and Robin Rose, MBA, Vice President, Healthcare Research Group who worked on this report.
While lengthy, with lots of detail about survey responses, the report is set up to be easy to review (lots of graphs and charts).
