CredentialStream for Ambulatory Surgical Centers

Privilege your Providers and Credential your Ambulatory Surgical Centers easily with CredentialStream

As payment reforms collide with consumer sentiment, and technology pushes outpatient care to new limits, outpatient surgery in the United States is growing in both frequency and complexity. According to research from Sg2, over the next decade, inpatient discharges are expected to decrease 2 percent while outpatient volumes will likely grow 15 percent across the U.S. As the government and payers scrutinize costs and push the shift to value-based care, outpatient surgery is becoming increasingly regulated.

At a busy Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC), it's easy to get overwhelmed and overlook the need to monitor privileges and credential your facility. But efficient credentialing and privileging processes are essential to collecting revenue and improving patient outcomes. The key to creating them is: AUTOMATION.

VerityStream's industry’s leading automated privileging and credentialing solution, delivers a comprehensive library of delineated privileges for more than 100 adult and pediatric specialties, including physicians, advanced practice professionals, and non-physician specialties. It also monitors health plan credentialing requirements, allowing you to stay on top of the facility credentialing process and ensuring your ability to provide care while eliminating inefficiencies and expediting reimbursement.

It often takes 60 to 90 days for ASCs to collect credentialing material required for surgeons to perform cases at the center. Now you can manage, accelerate, and automate the process of requesting facility and provider participation in health insurance networks with thousands of pre-formatted forms that populate in seconds, including forms from CAQH, PECOS, Medicaid and more.
