By automating the collection of peer reference feedback and hospital affiliation verifications, Credential 360® customers are seeing completed forms returned in an average of 4-5 days, beating the current industry standard of 4-5 weeks.
In addition, the number of peer references submitted has increased by 465% since the beginning of the year. It only takes about 5 minutes for references to complete the online form.
“Credential 360® has considerably cut our credentialing processing time and is really adding value for our medical staff services teams,” said Melodee J. Thomas, Administrative Credentialing Coordinator, DeKalb Physician Hospital Organization.
“Thanks to Credential 360, we were able to greatly reduce the time it takes to credential an entirely new hospitalist group. It’s a life saver!” said Audrey Lewis, Director, Medical Staff Services, Orange Regional Medical Center.
Credential 360® is a fast and paperless online solution that enables medical staff services teams and peer references to transform their time-consuming, manual process into a simple electronic experience that is accessible anywhere at any time from a mobile device, tablet or computer. Peer references can complete forms and sign-off electronically with all of the information instantly available to the credentialing team for follow-up and tracking. Hospital affiliation verification questionnaires and online privileging forms can be completed using the same easy process.
“We’re helping customers dramatically speed up the credentialing process, which has traditionally caused significant delays in getting new hires on board and driving revenue for the organization. We are already helping hundreds of healthcare organizations improve their reference checking on job candidates, now we are doing that for peer references,” said Ray Bixler, SkillSurvey’s President and CEO. “More and more healthcare organizations are using Credential 360® to address the problem of credentialing backlogs and seeing a direct impact on the bottom line.”
