Protecting Your Practice!
Bringing a new physician or advance
practice healthcare practitioner into your medical group is an
expensive and time consuming process. It is a major
investment in both your practice's and the new recruit's future.
And finding a good match is just the start of the process--next
comes setting up the new clinician to treat patients in the
clinic, surgery center, hospital and to bill for those services.
TPQVO understands the importance of
making sure a healthcare professional is qualified, competent
and the person listed on the professional documentation.
TPQVO has worked with hospitals and other healthcare
organizations for over 15 years checking and verifying
professional information as part of the medical staff and health
plan credentialing process.
TPQVO collects information from a
candidate about professional
and personal history as well as
relevant documents such as copies of certificates, licenses and
registrations. Rather than rely on self-reported
information from CVs and applications, TPQVO verifies the
information using NCQA and Joint Commission approved primary
sources. TPQVO will contact the medical school, residency
program, state licensing board or other information holder and
confirm information provided by the applicant such as program
completion, dates and specialty training. Moreover, TPQVO
will ask whether there were any disciplinary actions on file or
if any health problems were noted that would interfere with the
candidate's ability to provide safe and competent healthcare
