symplr, SkillSurvey Announce Integrated Solution That Drastically Speeds Up Peer Reference Process

Healthcare Facilities Can Now Complete Peer Referencing Process in Days Instead of Weeks or Months

Today, symplr®, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) based healthcare compliance and credentialing solutions, and SkillSurvey®, a leading online peer reference solution provider and certified member of the symplr Certified Partner Program™ , announced that SkillSurvey’s digital peer referencing solution integrates with symplr’s Cactus Provider Management Platform. This integration will provide Cactus users with an easy-to-use, digital peer reference experience that typically delivers feedback from providers’ peer references in less than three days. 

“While vital to ensuring the quality of healthcare providers, peer referencing can be time-consuming and error prone,” said Kyle Allain, General Manager and Vice President of Provider Management at symplr. “By partnering with SkillSurvey, clients can now automate much of what has been a manually intensive process while also increasing the accuracy of the data.”

Through the SkillSurvey and symplr integration the entire peer reference process is visible and can now be automated – from peer reference requests to the collection of completed surveys and follow up to non-responders. In addition, clients can customize forms specific to their organization or leverage SkillSurvey’s best practice forms. Once forms are completed, data is automatically loaded into the Cactus Provider Management system to fulfill credentialing requirements quickly and seamlessly.

“We’re excited to launch this integration and bring even more time-savings, visibility and accurate peer reference responses to credentialing professionals using symplr’s Cactus Provider Management Platform,” said Steve Heister, chief product officer and general manager of SkillSurvey’s digital peer referencing solution. “Together, SkillSurvey and symplr are bringing an easy and improved experience for everyone involved – applicants, their peers and the medical staff services professionals who are freed from traditional paper, pdf and fax-based methods of peer referencing.”

symplr and SkillSurvey will be at the NAMSS Conference sharing information about the Cactus Provider Management Platform - SkillSurvey digital peer referencing integration on Sept. 29 - Oct. 3, 2018, in booths #110 and #404, respectively.

Product Availability
