TPQVO, Inc. Credentials Verification Services

Working with TPQVO: Information for Healthcare Professionals

Who is TPQVO?

TPQVO was created in 1998 by merging the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society and Knoxville Academy of Medicine Central Verification Services into one statewide program.  TPQVO's mission is to provide innovative, practical, and top-quality credentials verification services that will benefit both physicians and healthcare entities by streamlining a cumbersome paper shuffling task into a quality centralized solution that saves time and money.

We accomplish the goal of streamlining by:

  • using a standard initial and recredentialing application for each region;

  • pre-populating recredentialing applications with data in our credentialing database to shorten the form filling process;

  • standardizing the recredentialing cycle among TPQVO client healthcare organizations by specialty so that all healthcare professionals of the same specialty or licensure (Allied Health) undergo recredentialing at the same point every two years; and

  • collecting credentialing related documents such as renewed licenses, DEA registrations and insurance policies at the same time for all clients with which the professional is affiliated.

Application Forms

There are two categories for application forms for use with TPQVO facilities:

Note:  Reappointment or recredentialing forms are not available on this website.  If you need a new reappointment or recredentialing form, you will need to contact TPQVO directly for a copy.

In Tennessee, most participating healthcare organization clients have agreed upon the use of one standard application and recredentialing form.  Depending upon your region, you will select the appropriate form available for filling and printing using Adobe® Acrobat® Reader™.  (This program is available for free download by clicking here.)  Other healthcare organization clients may use their own forms or the applicable mandated state credentialing form.

Confidentiality and Privacy

TPQVO maintains credentialing information under the strictest confidentiality policies.  Once we receive your information, we only release it to those healthcare organizations you authorize in writing.


Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have about our processes and policies.
