Hospitals have many ways of tracking clinician credentials. Some have legacy systems with gaps in the solution that they need to fill. Others do it the old-fashioned way with spreadsheets and paper files. Some do a little of both. The problem with any of these methods is that you’re not assured of getting the complete picture. Just like Hyland Software’s OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) solutions help healthcare organizations complete the patient record, OnBase can help complete your clinician credential packet. OnBase enables organizations to effectively manage the credentialing process by tracking all data in a central location.
A complete credentialing solution
OnBase provides hospitals with two options to solving their clinician credentialing challenges. The first is to have OnBase serve as a complete solution, providing a full range of features, including:
- Comprehensive reports to show what is missing for every clinician with automated reminders
- The ability to manage requirements for different states and specialties
- Online applications to kick off the credentialing process as well as uploading and viewing of documents
- The ability to approve credential requests via mobile devices – iPad, iPhone, Android and Blackberry
Additionally, OnBase provides you with a comprehensive, configurable workflow solution, helping save time while ensuring quick and accurate completion of credentialing requirements.
OnBase also integrates with your current credentialing system if you choose to keep it in place. OnBase offers a variety of integration tools and methods to ensure seamless unification of both platforms, from a non-programmatic approach to a full API. As a result, you can leverage your investment in a credentialing system by augmenting its functionality in a way that best suits your hospital. A flexible application-building toolkit helps you align the solution with your specific needs and requirements.
Regardless of which approach your hospital chooses, OnBase can serve as a foundational application that reduces one-off point solutions, eliminates isolated silos of information and can extend throughout your hospital. Instead of solving a single but important challenge – you have a platform to meet your hospital’s content-related challenges throughout the organization.
