Credentialing by proxy (CBP) is a streamlined process for the credentialing of telemedicine-based or virtual practitioners. CBP permits the hospital or facility offering telemedicine services to utilize the prime source verifications obtained and maintained by SOC Telemed.
Credentialing by proxy allows SOC Telemed partners to efficiently start and maintain their virtual care program while reducing the administrative burden associated with traditional credentialing of virtual providers. Participating in CBP has the potential to dramatically increase the speed and efficiency with which hospitals or facilities can facilitate the credentialing and privileging of virtual providers, reducing implementation time and costs, while providing timelier, expanded care and services to patients.
Because SOC is accredited by The Joint Commission, our partners can be assured that the prime source verifications we complete meet or exceed the quality and completeness expectations outlined for their own Medical Staff Services Office. Our commitment to quality ensures our clinicians are fit to practice with ongoing maintenance and verifications.
