The NCQA is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. NCQA certifies credentials verification organizations (CVOs) and accredits managed care organizations.
CVO certification is a voluntary review process which includes rigorous on-site evaluations conducted by a team of healthcare professionals and certified credentials specialists. A national oversight committee of physicians analyzes the team’s finding and determines certification based on the CVO’s compliance with NCQA standards.
According to NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane, “Achieving CVO certification from NCQA demonstrates that CredentialsOnLine has the systems, process and personnel in place to thoroughly and accurately verify providers' credentials and help health plan clients meet their accreditation goals.”
HealthLine Systems’ Chief Operating Officer David Clark comments: “We are proud to deliver certified credentialing and verification services to CredentialsOnLine clients including managed care organizations, hospitals, health systems, physician groups and freestanding surgery centers.”
Mr. Clark continued; “CredentialsOnLine clients enjoy comprehensive and customizable credentialing and verification solutions with 24/7 online access to provider information, profiles, and reports. Client benefits include faster primary source verification and shortened turnaround time.”
CredentialsOnLine has now successfully achieved seven consecutive NCQA certifications. NCQA certification is available every two years. CredentialsOnLine’s first certification was received in January 2000. Certification is awarded to participating organizations on the basis of individual credentials elements. CredentialsOnLine received NCQA certification for 10 out of 10 verification services:
