HOUSTON, Oct. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- symplr®, a leading healthcare governance, risk and compliance (GRC) software as a service (SaaS) platform, today announced integration between the IntelliCredTM cre-dentialing software suite and the SkillSurvey® digital peer referencing solution. The integration reduces the average time it takes medical office staff to obtain peer refer-ences and affiliations to less than three days.
"Through this integration, IntelliSoft users can now more easily and quickly get through one of the slowest and most manually intensive parts of the credentialing pro-cess," said Patrick Birmingham, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Provider Credentialing Services at symplr. "It's as easy as entering an applicant and their refer-ences into the SkillSurvey platform, and once the reference is complete, the infor-mation is immediately available to the credentialing specialist and easily added to Intel-liCred. The integration reduces time and saves money and resources."
The IntelliCred-SkillSurvey integration allows healthcare organizations to either use their own customized questionnaires or SkillSurvey's best-practice forms to gather and share the necessary data between systems. It also automatically sends reminders to peers who have not responded and flags a reference response, if appropriate. The integration includes a button in the IntelliCred record that allows a user to easily view the SkillSurvey screen side-by-side. The transparency and communication between systems enables complete responses to be available faster which enhances decision-making and improved patient safety.
"The SkillSurvey team aims to simplify peer referencing while providing a com-plete picture of the people healthcare organizations and facilities hire," said Steve Heister, Chief Product Officer and General Manager of SkillSurvey's digital peer refer-encing solution. "By integrating into another symplr solution, we are able to contribute to the symplr mission of improving patient safety."
The IntelliCred Platform - SkillSurvey digital peer referencing integration is available in IntelliCred versions 16.2 and 17. More information is available on the symplr website or at (866) 373-9725.
