Provide an executive summary to your team on how to credential providers. You will need to consider the following:
- Type of provider being credentialed
- Steps they will go thru to be credentialed
- Educational background needed
- Does this provider have an NPI number?
- State the provider will work in
- Is there a standard application?
- Is an onsite visit needed; why or why not
- Who gets credentialed (list at least 5 specialties)
- Are all facilities credentialed?
