It’s a familiar scenario in healthcare hiring. The recruiting team finds a great doctor for a critical vacancy, you fly her in for a tour, she signs the offer letter, and then tick, tock …. you wait. Weeks or even months go by before the credentialing process is completed, despite the medical staff services team’s thorough and expeditious handling of the case. That’s because the most frequent cause of delays in credentialing are outside the recruiter’s, the credentialer’s and even the applicant’s control. Most often, delays are due to incomplete or non-returned responses from the applicant’s peer references. We learned about this problem as we worked with our client base of more than 800 leading healthcare organizations to transform their reference checking and passive candidate recruitment processes.
Imagine an online, paperless way for peer references to respond to credentialing requests, so practitioners are on board and contributing faster.
A light bulb went on when they saw the dramatic time-savings and quality data that our patented Pre-Hire 360® brought to the reference checking process on the recruiting side. After some close collaboration and development, SkillSurvey Credential OnDemandTM was born, providing a fast and easy way for peer references to respond to requests online, anytime from any device. We recently expanded the capabilities of SkillSurvey Credential OnDemandTM to collect hospital affiliation verifications.
