From ADA News:
In an effort to reduce administrative burdens for dentists, the ADA and the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) are partnering to help streamline the credentialing process for dentists and participating organizations, such as payers, hospitals and employers.
This is great! I am now working in the dental sleep market and as such I needed to be credentialed with a number of new third party payers. It has been a slow frustrating and redundant process to say the least.
I have not tried the ADA system nor have I spoken with anyone who has. So I can not comment on this particular service however I do believe it is valuable and a good use of technology to reduce costs, reduce errors and speed up an other wise frustrating tedious process.
