900,000 Healthcare Providers Now Part of CAQH Universal Provider Datasource
Date:4/27/2011

WASHINGTON, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The CAQH® Universal Provider Datasource® (UPD®) has registered its 900,000th provider firmly establishing it as the go-to resource for complete and reliable self-reported data from physicians and other healthcare professionals.  Three out of five licensed and practicing physicians in the country have signed up with the service. About 7,000 additional providers are registering each month. CAQH estimates that UPD reduces provider administrative costs by $105 million a year.

"At a time when the electronic exchange of health information has created new and expanded requirements for verifying provider data, UPD is a key resource for accurate data to populate provider directories for regional, state, and federal health information exchanges," said CAQH Executive Director Robin Thomashauer.

As adoption of electronic health records and health information exchanges intensifies, it is important to eliminate administrative redundancy and simplify data sharing. Broader use of UPD supports those goals, particularly in relation to development of provider directories, a focal point of an HIT Policy Committee workgroup within the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. Last fall Sorin Davis, managing director of UPD, provided testimony to the Committee's Information Exchange Workgroup, Provider Directory Task Force.  Based on CAQH experience, Davis emphasized that technical requirements for provider directories should:

  • Integrate data from sources that directly engage providers in the collection process.
  • Enable direct communication with providers regarding data maintenance.
  • Offer providers access that is free, simple and secure.
  • Assure that data sources function with full transparency and permit provider access and control of their information.
