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

facilitating health information exchange is still under discussion, the CAQH experience offers policy-makers valuable insight on the importance of addressing physicians' core concerns: trust, reliability, privacy, and the use of information regarding their identity and professional profile," said Steven Waldren, MD, director of the Center for Health Information Technology at the American Academy of Family Physicians.

UPD eliminates the need for providers to fill out multiple forms with various healthcare organizations whenever information is needed for credentialing and other purposes, saving time and administrative costs for both the provider and the authorized database user.

UPD boasts 93.9% accuracy, according to a recent independent study. The data source is created through direct input from providers, who are automatically reminded to update and re-attest to their information every 120 days. An add-on feature, SanctionsTrack™, delivers timely information from 480 different state licensing boards, Medicare and Medicaid sources, and other relevant sources on physicians and other healthcare professionals whose licenses were revoked or had restrictions put on their practice.

About UPD

Used by more than 600 authorized healthcare delivery organizations to check information on individual providers, UPD is a single, uniform electronic utility that streamlines and improves the ability of physicians and other healthcare professionals in all 50 states to easily and securely submit, and control access to - at no charge - their online information for credentialing, claims administration, quality assurance and other purposes. UPD is endorsed by leading national provider and health plan associations, meets data collection requirements of healthcare quality accreditation agencies and has been adopted as a standard form for provider credentialing in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
