Credentialing 100

A precursor to Credentialing 101, this online course is designed for MSPs new to the field of credentialing. Typically, new MSPs learn their jobs on the fly, but in an era of new technologies, complex legal issues, updated processes, and multiple key players, the profession, regardless of someone’s stage in their professional lifecycle, has become much more complex. This interactive course addresses the basic aspects of credentialing and explains why they are important, helping those new to the profession understand the value of their role and its impact on their medical setting. For a limited time, this course includes a comprehensive glossary of terms unique to the profession that will serve as a continuing reference for the participants.

In Credentialing 100, participants will explore medical staff credentialing services in today’s diverse healthcare industry. They will learn the fundamentals of their profession, discovering the Who, What, Where and Why of credentialing and the essential role credentialing professionals play in patient safety and ensuring a quality healthcare experience. Please note: This online course is designed as an entirely online module. While it does include additional resources that you can print out, the course material is not printable.
