Integration to Bring Faster, Improved Mobile-Enabled Experience

Today, SkillSurvey®, a leading online peer reference solution provider and symplr®, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) based healthcare compliance and credentialing solutions, announced that SkillSurvey has been certified as a member of the symplr Certified Partner ProgramTM, and will integrate SkillSurvey’s digital peer referencing solution with symplr’s Cactus Provider Management Platform. This integration will provide Cactus users with an easy-to-use, digital peer reference experience that typically delivers feedback from providers’ peer references in less than three days.

“SkillSurvey’s digital peer referencing is disrupting the conventional weeks-long process of obtaining completed peer references for provider credentialing,” said Steve Heister, Chief Product Officer of SkillSurvey. “Peer referencing is a significant bottleneck in the credentialing process and our clients are reliably getting completed responses in less than three days – plus they’re hearing great feedback from the providers themselves who love the digital experience they can complete anytime from a mobile device.”

“We’re extremely pleased to have SkillSurvey as a member of the symplr Certified Partner Program leveraging our API to extend the available functionality of the Cactus Provider Management Platform,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of symplr. “Our customers frequently tell us about their frustrations managing the peer reference process, and it makes perfect sense for us to partner with the best-in-class product to solve this problem.”

It is not uncommon for it to take 5-6 weeks or more for peer referencing to be complete. Medical staff services members spend a lot of time sending reminders and resending forms and many questionnaires must be returned and resubmitted as they’re frequently returned incomplete.

Digital peer referencing reduces staff preparation time to just minutes, improves response quality and helps deliver feedback in less than three days. SkillSurvey has deep experience applying scientific methods to deliver prompt, candid responses from references for hundreds of healthcare organizations. SkillSurvey leverages this proven methodology and offers best practice forms to its clients as well as the ability to create digital versions of each hospital’s current peer reference questionnaires. The applicant enters their peer references who are sent a link to complete the questions. The questionnaire links are tracked and automated notifications keep medical staff services teams up to date.

Peer references also enjoy a simple, convenient experience that takes just minutes since they can complete the forms on any mobile device and sign-off with an e-signature. Required fields and form logic help ensure that responses are fully submitted and eliminate need for medical staff services team to follow-up on incomplete, unsigned, or illegible forms.

Product Availability
The Cactus Provider Management Platform- SkillSurvey digital peer referencing integration will be available in early 2018.
