The Benefits of Outsourcing Credentialing

Many organizations tasked with practitioner credentialing struggle with shrinking budgets, staffing limitations, and credentialing volume that far exceeds their ability to process in a timely and compliant manner. These challenges often result in improperly performed credentialing and significant delays in practitioners being approved by various peer review bodies for enrollment, membership, privileges, and general ‘participation’ status. This can have a negative impact on timely, quality patient care.

Episodic, short-term, or long-term outsourcing of credentialing functions can be a timely, cost-effective alternative that can solve these challenges. Outsourcing some or all credentialing functions can relieve backlogs, speed up the approval process and generally assist organizations in producing a higher quality credentialing product.  Whether your organization needs assistance with the end to end credentialing process, specific primary source verifications or ongoing monitoring activities, consider outsourcing to a reputable Credentials Verification Organization (CVO), like PCVS.
