Credentialing Services for Physicians and Hospitals
Physician Credentialing is Essential to the Revenue Cycle Process
As hospitals and physician practices employ more medical professionals, the proper credentialing of those professionals becomes increasingly important to the entire revenue cycle process.
A tremendous amount of reimbursement, legitimately due to hospitals and medical practices, is lost due to incomplete, incorrect, or delayed completion of required credentialing. And that is not entirely surprising in that credentialing is voluminous, varies by payer, with payer requirements changing over time.
Keeping Up with Physician Credentialing Requirements is Challenging for Hospitals
It is therefore very difficult to keep up with credentialing requirements, and hospital staff is understandably focused on new provider employment and contracting, and is often not focused on proper credentialing. But as proper credentialing is a threshold requirement in order to establish claims reimbursement for a given payer, credentialing is a critical part of the overall revenue cycle management process.
