The Cost of Medical Credentialing Errors: Protecting Patients, Providers, and Your Bottom Line

While everyone makes mistakes, credentialing errors in healthcare can have severe consequences.

While everyone makes mistakes, credentialing errors in healthcare can have severe consequences:

  • Financial Impact: Correcting an error requires investigation, fees, and potentially lost reimbursements, totaling hundreds or even thousands of dollars. In extreme cases, mismanaged credentialing can lead to costly lawsuits.
  • Patient Safety: Errors can delay access to qualified care, potentially resulting in patient harm. Maintaining accurate privilege delineation forms, though challenging, is crucial for patient safety.
  • Clinician Frustration: Credentialing is a time-consuming burden for providers, taking away from patient care and leading to exhaustion and low morale. Credentialing errors can further exacerbate these issues.

By minimizing errors:

  • You protect patients by ensuring qualified providers deliver care.
  • You improve provider satisfaction by freeing them from unnecessary administrative burdens.
  • You protect your organization financially by avoiding costly mistakes and lawsuits.

To achieve this:

  • Implement clear and documented policies and procedures.
  • Leverage the benefits of automation to streamline processes and reduce manual data entry.
  • Invest in training for staff to ensure proper application and understanding of procedures.

By prioritizing accurate credentialing, you can ensure the safety of your patients, the well-being of your staff, and the financial health of your organization.
