Outsourcing Provider Credentialing = Gaining Specialization

Specialization: Training in or devoting oneself to a particular area of study, occupation, or activity.
UNION CITY, N.J. - July 1, 2014 - PRLog -- It makes so much sense that doctors do this all the time. So, why then, isn’t it best practice to provide specialization for the critical tasks in physician offices, such as provider credentialing (http://www.clinicspectrum.com/Credentialing_Service.html)? It seems as if such a necessary task so vital to protecting a practice doesn’t get the respect or staff resources that it deserves. Instead, credentialing work is simply absorbed by various members of the back-office staff. As a result, the accuracy of credentialing work is often compromised, exposing the organization to financial and patient safety risks.

But rest assured, credentialing (http://www.clinicspectrum.com/Credentialing_Service.html) specialization does exist, and can be obtained. The answer: Outsourcing. By outsourcing an organization’s credentialing function, physician offices can better focus their staff on revenue-generating tasks, such as billing and collections.

A primary benefit of outsourcing is that it allows provider organizations to access industry-leading expertise on the nuances of physician credentialing, enabling them to get the work done, quicker, better, faster. Experienced credentialing (http://www.clinicspectrum.com/Credentialing_Service.html) professionals have spent years learning about information resources to verify credentials, which helps them avoid potential pitfalls, and enhance their work through best practices.

Working in harmony: It’s important to note that outsourcing doesn’t necessarily mean that provider organizations have to completely relinquish their control over the function. Rely on the specialization, while keeping the tasks that are easier to manage within the office. This also keeps costs in check. For instance, many organizations choose to retain control over certain aspects, while outsourcing the labor-intensive processes of conducting background and reference checks, or the tedious processes of verifying schools, licensure, employment, malpractice carriers, and more. Experienced outsourcing professionals have the tools, resources and knowledge to perform these tasks faster and more accurately.

With the right outsourcing arrangement and leveraging specialized experts, organizations can remain better focused on their core competencies to improve performance and profitability.
