Earlier this year, Verifiable launched a Salesforce app allowing full NCQA accredited credentialing of providers, with verification and monitoring of provider data. Verifiable is the only organization today that supports full NCQA accredited credentialing within Salesforce, allowing organizations to manage their data more easily, streamline and automate processes, and align organizations with a single source of truth. Without this accreditation, organizations may not be meeting state, federal, or payer requirements, which may lead to additional auditing.
What is NCQA and why is it important?
In today’s healthcare landscape the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is the gold standard and arguably the most widely recognized accreditation when it comes to implementing industry best practices to improve the quality of healthcare. NCQA certification has become essential to identifying industry standards and quality among healthcare organizations, contractors, and delegates. The NCQA Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) Certification aids in verifying operations and protecting customers by ensuring a consistent and effective verification procedure of practitioner credentials.
In April of this year, Verifiable announced our NCQA CVO certification in all eleven elements, further deepening our commitment to quality improvement for healthcare organizations needing to comply with requirements.The automation of NCQA certified verifications of provider data have turned into a springboard for the digital transformation of credentialing.
The Operational Bottleneck of Credentialing
Provider credentialing has long been an operational constraint for healthcare companies. The process of obtaining, verifying, and maintaining provider credentials is critical to ensuring quality care but can be time-consuming, resource-intensive, and difficult to scale.
Additionally, because of the time and cost involved with manually revalidating a provider’s credentials against numerous primary sources, continuous monitoring is often neglected.
As the provider landscape changes with providers moving between organizations and even states, the credentialing process must be repeated, adding even more friction to an already complex system. This can cause delays in care, added costs, and frustration for providers and patients alike.
The good news is that complex and evolving regulatory reform has elevated the need for healthcare companies to invest in automated credentialing and monitoring.
Healthcare organizations are now reaching across new markets and delivery methods to meet these business objectives and stay ahead of the game, with a goal to efficiently scale, manage and maximize their network. The need to respond quickly and efficiently to this rapidly changing landscape is resulting in a new focus on operational agility.
