Are you Onboarding a new physician/ advanced-practice providers (APPs), or a previously credentialed provider/ advanced-practice providers (APPs) to your practice? Are you wanting to start building your onboarding program to credential providers in the future? If you answered yes, then this is the webinar for you! The onboarding process is filled with many different requirements. The slightest mistake in this process can result in significant reimbursement delays and rejection of your application package. Implementing a proven method for credentialing is the key to efficient, timely, and cost-effective credentialing. Failure to implement a strong credentialing program will impact the provider and practice revenue, leading to an affect on patient care. A successful onboarding program will ensure you avoid delay in reimbursement and interruptions to patient care.
