RCM tip of the day: Automate CAQH re-attestation processes

Technology advances can help hospitals and health systems expedite the time they spend managing Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare re-attestation to credential providers, according to Patrick Doyle, senior vice president at Newport Credentialing Solutions.

Mr. Doyle shared this tip with Becker's Hospital Review.

"To maintain provider enrollment, CAQH re-attestation is required every 120 days for each provider. Advances in technology are enabling this process to be greatly streamlined. The ability to set automated reminders and alerts of pending re-attestation dates not only saves times, but eliminates the possibility of providers falling through the cracks."
