Patient demand is outpacing the supply of providers. You need a fast and accurate credentialing product you can trust.

Burnout and turnover are rising among healthcare professionals, including credentialing teams who are increasingly overburdened by manual and exhaustive workflows. Medallion's “2024 State of Payer Enrollment and Credentialing” report reveals that 52% of credentialing teams rely entirely on manual processes, highlighting an urgent need for more streamlined and efficient credentialing methods.

To address these challenges and avoid further complications, a simplified approach to credentialing is essential — to alleviate much of the burden and get more providers credentialed safely and effectively to meet patient demand. 

Here's a guide to evaluating your credentialing product options, including an introduction to Medallion's innovative credentialing product, which promises speed and accuracy.

Evaluating your credentialing product options

Transparency, efficiency, and reliability in credentialing are paramount. When considering a new solution or taking a close look at your current one, keep the following criteria in mind:

  • Speed and certification: Does the credentialing product offer an NCQA certified credentialing file in 30 seconds? Investigate any claims of doing "30-second credentialing" to understand the process scope.
  • Quality assurance (QA) processes: Effective QA processes are crucial as they ensure the accuracy of credential verification, reflecting on your organization's compliance and provider satisfaction. Asking the question “Do you have automation and human checkpoints in place, and can you walk us through exactly what that looks like?” will help you dig deeper.
  • Integration and usability: The best credentialing product offers seamless integration with your current systems. Finding out whether you would be working with a company that’s acquired several others will play a part in understanding what your workflow efficiency would be like and help you avoid any unnecessary need for extensive training or overhaul.
  • Future-readiness: A look at the product roadmap or asking “How recently has your platform been updated and how much do you invest in user experience?” can provide insights into the solution's adaptability and future enhancements.
  • Setup and implementation complexity: One of the most important questions to consider when vetting a credentialing product is “How complicated is this to set up and how long will it take to be full up and running?” because the ease and timeline for setup and full operation are significant factors, as they impact the solution's immediate effectiveness and long-term viability.
