The days of filling out paper applications and faxing them in are slowly becoming a thing of the past. More and more providers are enrolling and credentialing electronically. There are many benefits to electronic provider enrollment and credentialing. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of electronic enrollment and credentialing so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not it is right for your practice!
Among the benefits of electronic provider enrollment and credentialing is that it saves time. Rather than spending hours filling out paper applications, information is entered into an online portal. This can save you a significant amount of time, which you can then use to see more patients or take care of other administrative tasks. By doing this, providers are required right at the beginning of the process to submit a complete set of requirements thus resulting in less rejection or denial of applications. Although it may seem daunting at the start, organizing is the key as we mentioned in another blog.
Another benefit is that it is more secure. Paper applications can be easily misplaced or lost, but electronic applications are much harder to lose or tamper with. This means that your information will be safer and less likely to fall into the wrong hands. Submitting your documents electronically is cost-effective because there is a decrease in the volume of paper needed to submit the requirements and more efficient since it’s a less labor-intensive way of credentialing.
Lastly, it improves the logistics with regard to the dissemination of information and the ability to have documentation of what was used to make a credentialing decision on a specific date. An online application can be immediately available to an applicant/your enrollment and credentialing partner while a mailed paper application won’t be available for several days.
Overall, electronic provider enrollment and credentialing offer many benefits, such as time savings and increased security. Our company offers you a guarantee that your documents are secured and treated with utmost care and confidentiality; that your application is handled only by experts and the best from our team.
