Physician Privileging and Primary Source Verification

What is Physician Privileging?

The process by which a healthcare professional (e.g., physician, nurse practitioner, pharmacist) is granted authorization from a hospital, health care institution or facility to render specific diagnostic, procedural, or therapeutic services.

Privileging has only to do with healthcare professionals and facilities.

Primary Source Verification: putting time on your side

Primary Source Verification is the first step in the privileging process, during which all required documents that certify a healthcare professional’s education, training, licensure, and more, are gathered.

The process is as time-consuming as it is time-sensitive because verification is required before a healthcare professional can begin work. Having verification done accurately and in a timely manner requires the skill of experienced verification specialists. 

It’s why Medusind has a team of experts dedicated to primary source verification.

All the time. Rush times. Totally secure

Medusind can provide ongoing monthly document collection to ensure that all provider documentation is current during the time between the appointment and reappointment cycles. This is vital for hospitals undergoing surveys by certification boards. 

Monthly updates for Medical licensure, malpractice insurance, Medicare sanctions, and any other required documentation are also available.

For temporary privileges, the team can accommodate urgent rush files within 48 hours. Should a provider need special temporary privileges, in the case of an emergency procedure or in the event of a local natural disaster relief program, Medusind experts can quickly provide necessary documentation,  allowing the hospital to extend temporary privileges.

Primary source verification with Medusind provides less paper and greater security for confidential information.
