Physician credentialing – what is involved in the process: Part 1

Physician credentialing – what is involved in the process you ask? There are several steps and processes involved in physician credentialing, so hang tight. The first thing that I feel that I should mention to you, is that when you are selecting what we refer to as a “locum tenens company,” you should always, and might I repeat always, make sure that the company/firm will be dedicated to providing you with “risk management.”

You need to make sure that you have risk management for the client that is recruiting the physicians, as well as the physician themselves. You must absolutely not have a brief interview, and consider everything to turn out great. You need to follow direct steps in the interview such as identifying and understanding the physician’s reason for becoming a “locum tenens”, physician.

You will also need to make sure that the physician’s background (such as training and work history) are completely clarified and known to an exact point. This wraps up the first point in the process of Physician credentialing – what is the process involved: Part 1.
