Duplicative and insecure vendor credentialing processes cost the healthcare industry up to $1b per year. It can be a real pain for suppliers to provide multiple versions of the same credentials to access different healthcare networks, and with current processes, there are significant gaps in accuracy, compliance and timeliness. No one wants to deal with delayed patient care, and to have this happen because of credentialing issues is unacceptable. Moreover, current processes may not even be compliant with laws, regulations, policies, and standards. In short, there is a lack of trust and hardly any verification processes to ensure that both suppliers and providers are in compliance.
