Lakeland, FL – Watson Clinic’s credentialing department recently earned a recertification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This two-year Certification acknowledges organizations that establish the highest quality standards in their credentialing practices following a rigorous review of policies, filing practices, and quality improvement measures.
Watson Clinic’s credentialing department works to verify a physician’s qualifications, education record, various licenses, and their ability to perform the services for which they are hired. This assures the community that Watson Clinic retains only the most exceptional medical talents available.
“By undergoing a voluntary accreditation process by the NCQA, we are able to compare our efforts alongside the very best and brightest medical institutions across the country,” says Sherry Cromwell, manager of Watson Clinic’s Credentialing department. “As we have in years past, our department received exemplary ratings across the board in all categories.”
NCQA is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to assessing and reporting on the quality of managed care plans, managed behavioral healthcare organizations, preferred provider organizations, new health plans, physician organizations, credentials verification organizations, disease management programs and other health-related programs.
