The considerable length of time it can take to credential and enroll practitioners in health care networks—thus enabling practitioners to provide and bill for services—is a frustrating issue for many health systems today.
Credentialing improvements such as standardizing and/or centralizing, integrating with practitioner recruitment and enrollment, leveraging data across the network, and, in some cases, achieving delegated credentialing agreements with third-party payers are resulting in optimal practitioner application turnaround time and outcomes for top health systems and hospitals such as:
- Significant cost savings and improved ROI from greater efficiencies and economies of scale
- Expedited revenue: Practitioners quickly processed, authorized to practice, and enrolled with payers means revenue in the door sooner
- Risk reduction: With efficient, high-quality application processing there is less pressure to grant temporary privileges (and therefore less clinical and legal risk)
- Practitioner satisfaction: Less paperwork and delay combined with quick authorization to practice = happy practitioners
Every day, The Greeley Company helps our clients transform their credentialing. Recently, we’ve been working with many health systems to centralize and/or streamline their credentialing, privileging, and provider enrollment functions to achieve greater efficiency, quality, cost savings, and practitioner & staff satisfaction. I invite you to download a case study on one of our recent projects, System-Wide Credentialing & Privileging Challenges and Opportunities.
As Chief Credentialing Officer for The Greeley Company, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss how you might leverage credentialing data across your system, maximize efficiencies and economies of scale, and optimize turnaround times while improving physician satisfaction—as well as share stories of other clients we’ve helped. I invite you to call 888-749-3054 or click here to arrange to speak with a Greeley representative about your credentialing-related questions and challenges.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your organization’s continued success!
