MD-Staff, CAQH Work Together to Make Sharing Provider Data Easier and More Accurate for Groups
WASHINGTON and TEMECULA, Calif., /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Statistics & Management Inc. (ASM) and CAQH® today announced that they are working together to make it easier for large provider groups to share credentials and other information with health plans. MD-Staff, the ASM flagship credentialing system, now automatically generates rosters that may be uploaded directly into CAQH ProView for Groups, enabling provider organizations to submit information about their providers accurately and efficiently with multiple health plans at once.
"This simplified data collection process has the potential to save hospitals and group practices countless hours and needless frustration while improving the accuracy and completeness of provider information," said Steve Slaton, Director, Product Management at CAQH. "We are taking a significant step forward in addressing the provider data challenges that plague our nation's healthcare system."
CAQH ProView for Groups is a new feature of CAQH ProView, the industry standard solution used by more than 1.4 million providers to self-report data. This new functionality replaces the current highly manual, fragmented process for maintaining and sharing provider rosters. Delegated groups no longer need to maintain a separate file for each contracted plan. Instead, they can submit one standardized file through a centralized portal, which automatically checks for errors. Participating plans then receive high quality provider data that can be easily uploaded into their systems and online directories.
MD-Staff, a powerful, user friendly enterprise-level credentialing system used by over 1,200 facilities has added a new feature that enables groups to automatically download rosters in a CAQH-ready format.
"Managing different roster requirements and formats for each plan is an operational headache," said Nick Phan, Executive Vice President of ASM. "We are excited to be the first vendor to support CAQH ProView for Groups."
"Offering a streamlined process and standardized format for provider data collection, CAQH ProView for Groups is eliminating many major pain points," said Slaton. "The new integration with MD-Staff now makes it even easier for groups to share information with plans and sets a new standard for provider data management systems."
