Credentialing Application Service
This service was created to ease the credentialing hassle health care providers go through when they join or go through the reappointment process with health plans, hospitals and other facilities. Once a provider’s data is entered into ASPA software application, specific plan and hospital credentialing applications can be populated which eliminates the redundancy of having to complete each application by hand. This service allows the managers/administrators and providers to use their valuable time in other areas of their practice such as marketing, patient satisfaction, receivables.
