When you have immediate coverage needs at your facility and have found the right physician to help, getting hung-up in the credentialing process can be a challenging and time-consuming issue. Despite the challenges, not properly credentialing a physician can open up your facility to major risks, both clinical and legal.
Locum tenens physician credentialing can add another layer of complexity to credentialing, as needs often arise quickly, and not all locum tenens agencies are created equal when it comes to credentialing support.
“At NEXTLocums we have a team dedicated to credentialing support so we can ensure the highest standard of customer service to both our clients and our physicians,” said Sheri Snively, NEXTLocums Manager of Physician Credentialing. “We make the process as painless as possible for everyone involved.”
How We Simplify the Credentialing Process
We communicate with you. – Communication is the key to keeping the process moving. We communicate with you where we are in the process, what we still need and our timeline for completion. Our priority is our relationship with you and your facility, so we believe in transparency and building trust.
We already hold relationships with ready-to-work physicians. – Because we’ve worked with many of our applicants before, we have much of the documentation we already need for credentialing, ensuring a fast, painless process for you.
We customize to your facility needs. – We send you what you need, the way that you ask for it.
We communicate with our providers. – We offer tips and education to our providers on how to best organize their documentation, keep their CVs up-to-date and house their licenses and certificates, so when the time comes, all their documents are at their fingertips.
We catch mistakes early. – We not only collect the information you need, but we verify it as well. We find gaps in CVs, suspended medical licenses, malpractice, etc. so you don’t waste time on candidates not fit for your facility.
We don’t waste your time. – We only present candidates that fit your need. Need someone board certified? That’s what we will send. Does the physician need to be able to perform a specific procedure? That’s all we will submit. NEXTLocums takes great pride in only working with the best physicians and we treat every placement like this is the physician who would treat our own mother.
We have the experience in our credentialing department. – Our credentialing assistance team has many years over 36 combined years of experience credentialing physicians and advanced practice professionals. Experience matters in credentialing, because the smallest of details can be the difference between the way your patients are cared for.
