CLEVELAND, June 8, 2021 -- Axuall, a workforce intelligence technology company, is proud to announce it has earned Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), receiving certification for 11 out of 11 verification services. The certification demonstrates that Axuall has the systems, processes and personnel in place to thoroughly and accurately verify clinicians’ credentials.
Axuall provides networked computer software to healthcare systems, staffing agencies, and health plans, that is used to acquire information from clinicians, data partners and NCQA-approved primary sources to support credentialing, privileging, and health plan enrollment processes. The Axuall solution enables partners to dramatically reduce onboarding and enrollment time by streamlining the secure sharing of digitally verified
credentials between clinicians, authorized verifiers and organizations that
require this information quickly and continuously to meet patient demand,
ensure clinical coverage and optimize related operations.
“Axuall's platform and software empower our medical staff and credentialing operations division to meet the high bar we've set for ourselves as a high-quality, innovative health system and CVO. This achievement of NCQA accreditation confirms Axuall’s commitment to quality and the value that they immediately bring to their partner organizations,” said Melissa Walters, Assistant Vice President of Medical Staff Operations at MedStar Health.
In addition to the software Axuall has developed, the company can now provide NCQA Certified CVO support services. This allows the company to act as a technology partner and/or a traditional CVO as needed, to best support the unique needs of each organization.
“Earning NCQA certification across all categories showcases our team’s dedication to the highest standards as we look to solve some of the most pressing issues in healthcare workforce management today,” said Charlie Lougheed, Axuall CEO. “This accomplishment also underscores the importance of the workforce intelligence solutions we are building, ultimately supporting organizations across the healthcare industry in their own pursuits of compliance and quality.”
