Client Testimonial

“Our credentialing process has significantly improved since we started sending our credentialing committee members to Greeley events. Our credentialing committee is able to apply principled decisions to the credentialing process. They recognize when they have deviated from a principled credentialing process and are able to perform an analysis of the problem to determine an appropriate solution and apply it”
