In the simplest terms, hospital credentialing is how doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel are vetted to ensure they are qualified to work in their field and provide medical services. It is a process to ensure all staff and patients’ safety at a particular medical facility. However, it can be time-consuming and costly. Thankfully, companies like medtigo Connect offer streamlined hospital credentialing services based on years of experience and knowledge of hospital best practices.

Why is Hospital Credentialing Needed?

Hospital credentialing is needed to verify that a potential candidate has all of the necessary medical training, certifications, and history to perform their job adequately. It’s also crucial for medical facilities to verify that all of a candidate’s certifications are current and genuine.

How Does the Hospital Credentialing Process Work?

The reason why hospital credentialing can be so costly and time-consuming is that there is a large volume of documentation that administrative departments in medical institutions need to collect and verify, including:

  • Surgical Logs
  • State Licensing Information
  • Board Qualifications & Certifications
  • 10-Year Insurance Claims Reports
  • Documentation of Hospital Privileges
  • Their Most Current CV
  • DEA Certificate
  • ACLS/BLS Certification
  • School Diploma
  • Immunization Records
  • Professional References
  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Card
  • Residency Diploma

There can be an enormous amount of information for an administrative team to track down and verify. The longer this process takes, the longer it takes for you as a doctor or nurse to be approved to join the group. Unfortunately, this delay in the process results in the loss of thousands of dollars for medical professionals in income and billions for medical facilities where patients are not being seen or billed.
