Delegated Credentialing

More Than a TeleMedicine Provider

The team at TeleSpecialists takes pride in the quality of service to patients and to partner hospitals across the United States. We are proud to be ISO 9001:2015 certified and accredited by The Joint Commission.

In conjunction with our medical services, TeleSpecialists offers Delegated Credentialing (also known as credentialing by proxy). The growing popularity of telemedicine can put a strain on in-house credentialing resources, and medical facilities look to Delegated Credentialing to alleviate the workload of their internal credentialing team. Utilizing a Delegated Credentialing service allows the facility’s team to process physician credentialing packets faster and often at a net cost-saving to the hospital.

Why choose our proxy services?

In an effort to reduce turnaround time, drive consistent processing quality, and expedite service implementations, at a price that beats external credentialing companies, the team at TeleSpecialists created a streamlined and efficient Delegated Credentialing process for the provision of our telemedicine services.

Once retained, facilities will be assigned a designated credentialing liaison, who will work directly with the facility’s credentialing team to establish expectations, physician packet requirements and due dates. Physician credentialing packets are guaranteed to be tailored to each facility’s specific needs and are submitted to our hospital partners complete and ready for board approval. For established physicians with TeleSpecialists, a packet can be provided as quickly as 24 hours; our entire physician panel’s packet set can be provided to your hospital in an approval-ready format in as little as one week. In fact, we are so confident in the completeness of our physician credentialing packets, your facility will not receive a bill for our Delegated Credentialing services until your board approves our physician.

When contracting with TeleSpecialists’ Delegated Credentialing services, your facility can choose from:

  • One-Time Credentialing Service
  • Credentialing for all TeleSpecialists’ Physicians
