Healthcare Practitioner Credentialing
The process of credentialing and privileging staff is one of the most important duties a healthcare organization undertakes. Through thorough vetting of a practitioner’s competence and qualifications, practitioners can increase the likelihood that their provided care will be of high quality and delivered in a safe manner. Without a sound system of credentialing in place, facility leaders place patient safety in jeopardy, increasing the potential for medical accidents and hospital liability.
