Abstract

A health care organization's thoughtful and rigorous credentialing and privileging process is not only required by state and federal regulations but is essential for building a quality professional staff. The addition of nonphysician providers has challenged organizations to articulate the appropriate credentialing process for these providers. Further, the credentialing process has been burdened by the redundancy created when providers require credentialing and privileging by multiple health care settings and managed care organizations. This paper describes a multidisciplinary credentialing and privileging system of the highest standard that minimizes effort and expense for both the provider and the organization.
