Charleston, SC (PRWEB) April 24, 2018
Verge Health, a leading provider of governance, risk, and compliance solutions for healthcare, has been recognized in the recent KLAS report, Credentialing: Options Abound. Of all vendors participating in the survey, Verge Health was ranked highest by its customers for Primary-Source Verification & Privileging Management.
Verge Health streamlines and expedites the credentialing process by providing services and software to centrally manage practitioner data and primary source verification for evaluation and privileging. A key benefit of the company’s Credentialing module is that it connects with other modules within the Converge platform offering greater impact on patient safety, giving health systems a more expansive and detailed view of risk across the enterprise. Verge Health’s services and client relationships were consistently called out as a key strength in the report.
“We are pleased to be recognized by our customers in the KLAS report. There are 400,000 deaths in the U.S. each year caused by preventable adverse events. Having a strong credentialing solution is essential to reversing this trend and we believe it should be the keystone of every health system’s pursuit of patient safety across the continuum,” says Mark Crockett, MD and chief executive officer of Verge.
Feedback from current customers covered experience with the application as well as customer service and response to requests for modifications. In the words of one client, “Verge Health can easily customize any forms or processes that we might need. They are responsive to our requests, and they work in a timely manner. Their interfaces are easy for the physicians to use. The Verge Health team stays on top of expirations and goes the extra mile to contact the physicians.”
The report notes “As healthcare organizations merge, acquire, and consolidate in greater numbers, KLAS has observed a marked increase in the number of CIOs and other executives looking for information on the credentialing options available to them.” This is the first study by KLAS on credentialing vendors, which surveyed more than 100 executives and medical offices.
