What is Concierge Credentialing?
Credentialing is the process of organizing and verifying a provider’s professional records. Their NPI, professional licenses, diploma’s, certifications, attestations and professional references make up a provider’s professional credentialing file. This process is completed every 2-3 years depending upon an organization’s accreditation status. The process of credentialing is to verify the accuracy and specific data in a provider’s documents as required by different accrediting entities.

What is PSV?
PSV- Means Primary Source Verification.
When a provider applies for privileges at a Hospitals, Surgery Centers, Insurance Companies and/or Physician Organizations they are required and requested to complete an application and allow the credentialing entity to research their educational and professional history.
Organizations will verify with other third party agencies, and possibly request a credit report or criminal background search. This process is called Primary Source Verification (PSV) which is the process of requesting and receiving verification of a provider’s stated credentials from the college or other entity that issued the diploma or certificate. It is very important that your documents are accurate and they all match. Problems begin when there are inaccuracies and discrepancies between various records. Another problem area can occur when professional references do not respond in a timely manner, making sure that CVOs have all needed items to verify helps the process run smoothly.
