A national marketing effort with Health Leaders Media has brought PCVS into the spotlight. Now more than ever, PCVS has received more inquiries from potential clients as well as an increase of new and renewed clients. As a result, PCVS has more than 110 active clients and has credentialed more than 85,000 initial providers. The turnaround time for our National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) clients averages 21 days with a 99.4% accuracy and completeness rate.

PCVS continues to review enhancements within Cactus and is looking to migrate to its cloud-based software in 2017.

Its recertification with NCQA will be up for assessment in the Spring of 2017 with the reaccreditation for URAC in the Fall of 2017.
