How to Efficiently Manage Credentialing at Scale
Healthcare staffing agencies face many challenges – an exacerbating talent shortage, compliance concerns, and tedious manual processes that take a lot of time. Smart and dynamic credentialing is critical to efficiently place qualified providers in the right role, onboard them, and redeploy them for their next assignment while ensuring compliance throughout and simplifying the process for your team of credential specialists every step of the way.
Read on to see how you can use the Bullhorn platform to manage your credentialing process at scale to drive better compliance throughout the entire talent lifecycle.
Collect credentials efficiently
Convenience for providers is key. Coupled with people’s changing digital expectations, providers can be working at any time of day – given that healthcare is 24/7, so that patients get the care and treatment they need. So, it is essential to allow nurses and physicians to engage with your staffing agency when it is most convenient for them, sending them the right message at the right time.
You can allow providers to upload, update, and view their credentials when they want with the Bullhorn Talent Platform, while you can set which credentials you need and get notified when there has been a change. Or similarly, your credential specialists can collect this and upload this into your Bullhorn ATS.
Check and manage credentials with visibility
Ditch those spreadsheets where you don’t have visibility into everyone’s credentials across your team and drive further efficiencies using Bullhorn. The credentials uploaded or updated in the Bullhorn Talent Platform flow directly into the Bullhorn ATS, a repository for providers’ credentials.
No matter how you collect credentials, your team of credential specialists can see a centralized list of providers and their credentials, so they can see who is credentialed and ready to work – and who is not – and better understand where to focus their time. You can also drill down deeper into providers’ credentials on the candidate record.
Maintain compliance on the job and be ready for redeployment
Credentials, like those for basic life support or CPR, expire. But it doesn’t have to be a headache to keep track of when you need to follow up with providers so they remain compliant while on the job or when you want to redeploy them for their next assignment. With automated expiration alerts, you can automatically notify providers or send reminders to your team to reach out to workers when providers’ credentials are expiring.
Credentialing throughout the entire talent and recruiting lifecycle can be a smooth and efficient process, so you can reduce the load on your credentialing specialists and ultimately drive better compliance.
