Credentialing and enrollment with plans is a multifaceted issue for our members. Enrollment with plans is such a burden for physicians that this year the Washington State Medical Association (WSMA) put forward HB 2335, which WSHA supported, in an attempt to find a legislative solution for this issue. While it remains to be seen if more needs to be done on this front, WHS brought on a partner, CredSimple, to help our members streamline the other side of the process. This partnership is opportune because with all the changes to credentialing that have taken place, we have seen many of the traditional players either exit the market completely, or raise prices.
CredSimple offers a streamlined virtual process that is designed to enhance the traditional credentialing processes that are largely paper and mail driven for a fraction of the cost. Their solution is designed to scale up or down, depending upon the needs of the hospital member. WHS is confident that if any of our members find themselves in a situation where they are faced with having to evaluate their internal credentialing processes, CredSimple can become the solution that meets their needs.
