Common Pain Points:
  • Incomplete or inaccurate paperwork which is critical to the process
  • Ineffective communication

    From agency during process or agency not understanding the facility’s process

  • Time delays in the process
Ideas:
  • Senior staff oversight instead of junior staff
  • Monitoring total spend

    Be honest in your invoice processing

  • Set minimum expectations for applications in order to be considered
  • Be wary of agencies

    Agencies can pre-populate applications for the physician and this can lead to unintended false information

  • Working with 3 or more agencies can quickly fill all of your time
  • Provide internal staff with good tools and systems
  • Communicate regularly with agency and credentialing teams
