We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 10/13 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by @CAQH on the topic of “Role of Provider Engagement for Improving Data Accuracy.”
Healthcare provider data forms the foundation of many important processes in the nation’s healthcare system, whether referring a patient to a specialist, paying insurance claims, credentialing providers or maintaining accurate provider directories. Yet access to accurate, timely provider data has remained elusive.
A lack of authoritative and reliable sources has resulted in a costly, piecemeal approach to acquiring and maintaining provider information. The commercial healthcare industry spends at least $2.1 billion annually on inefficient processes to maintain the data, according to a recent CAQH white paper.
While healthcare providers are important contributors of their professional and practice information, the task of submitting frequent updates to different organizations, through different channels, has created a significant administrative challenge.
Join @CAQH in a discussion about the role of provider engagement in improving data accuracy. Topics will cover strategies for collaboration and enhanced communication to ease the burdens on providers and users of provider data.
