Provider Credentialing

Provider Credentialing Reimagined:

What Credentialing Leaders Want Executives to Know

Jump to Topic


Patient safety and healthcare operations rely on a network of credentialed physicians, nurses, and other specialized healthcare professionals to match the supply and demand of healthcare organizations and communities. ​ 

A problem hidden under the surface is not supply and demand, but rather credentialing. A slow credentialing process frustrates practitioners, burns out staff, and delays revenue and patient care. ​ 

The cost of slow credentialing — delays can cost organizations $9,000 per physician, per day. 

Gain Insights from 2023 Survey Results

To better understand the biggest roadblocks to provider credentialing a 2023 State of Medical Staff Services Survey was conducted with medical staff professionals, credentialing managers, and quality managers across health systems, hospitals, and large physician group practices in the U.S. 

Nearly 700 medical staff professionals were surveyed earlier this year about the challenges and opportunities for improvement with the overall credentialing and enrollment process.
