Provider Credentialing—Process Improvement and Data Management Are High Priorities
Medical Services Professionals are striving to streamline processes when it comes to the credentialing of physicians and other healthcare providers. For many, however, the process continues to be paper-based and inefficient. In order to develop an accurate picture of where things stand in the credentialing industry, The National Association Medical Staff Services (NAMSS) agreed to allow Echo—A HealthStream Company to survey its membership about major initiatives. This research paints a picture of an industry with a vision to employ technology and automation; however, it is struggling to complete activities that survey respondents know are needed and will be highly beneficial in the long term. We hope this eBook will help you assess your organization’s progress relative to the rest of the industry and identify further strategies to improve your credentialing operations.
