Top Medical Staff Services Department Staffing Challenges Revealed

Medical staff services departments might need interim staffing assistance at any point for a variety of reasons. The Greeley Company has provided temporary credentialing and medical staff professional assistance to healthcare organizations nationwide for over 25 years, often for the following 7 common challenges and circumstances: 

  1. Implementation of a new credentialing software system
  2. Backlogs of initial applicants or reapplicants for credentials/privileges
  3. Merger or acquisition of another healthcare facility resulting in increase of credentialing/privileging requests
  4. Medical leaves of absence
  5. Increased volume of locum tenens or employed physicians requesting credentials/privileges
  6. Short-term coverage of staffing gaps as permanent employees are recruited and hired
  7. Assistance required to transition to a paperless office

The credentialing specialists The Greeley Company sent us were extremely professional, competent and productive. Their skill level would certainly be described as ‘expert’ and the result of their work was to help us clean up our application backlog and reduce our turn-around time to a ‘best practice level.’ Our team has been delighted to work with them, and we have also sought out their suggestions on improving our processes.
