Trust is paramount in the medical business. If you don’t trust the doctor who is treating you, then why are you even going to sit in the waiting room, let alone get an examination – or even allow a doctor to access some of the most sensitive personal information that you could have?
That’s why medical credentialing is so important. The process of credentialing involves a series of documentations and reviews that, when approved, mean that patients can place their complete trust in a chosen health care provider. And while the process of credentialing can be tedious for some, electronic credentialing processes offer increased efficiency on a scale unlike any other.
Medical errors are responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans every year, and that type of statistic is sobering. That’s why industry leaders are so emphatic and serious about the enhanced standards of quality and competency that credentialing proves. And doing credentialing applications by hand can sometimes lead to just the slightest error, which in turn could lead to negative effects on patient safety, a physician’s professional reputation and by extension, the affiliated institution’s reputation.
That’s where automated credentialing is such a boost to the medical industry. By outsourcing the credentialing process instead of trying to fill out everything by hand in the office, a health care provider knows they can eliminate any inefficiencies, eliminate errors and reduces the cost of labor. It allows for greater safety of all patients, plus it can protect practices from financial harm.
