Imagine if instead of going to one supermarket for your weekly groceries, you had to visit individual stores to pick up each item on your list – even similar items such as specific fruits and vegetables. Your shopping trip would be extended to a needlessly long time, and your total cost would likely be much higher.

Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? Yet that’s the way payers typically have approached provider credentialing.

Fortunately, a new method in credentialing is replacing that “one-at-a-time outreach” process with more of a “supermarket” approach. Instead of having to contact each provider individually, payers can look up providers through a portal and subscribe to completed applications and support materials in minutes.

The infographic below provides more details on the benefits of using a credentialing service. If you want to save time, reduce costs, and improve the accuracy of your provider networks, you’ll definitely want to give it a look.
