Sunset Credentialing

Planning for Change – Don’t Wait for the Sunset

As credentialing software continues to evolve and improve, it’s essential to ensure that your organization’s systems remain up-to-date and relevant. The need for a robust, credentialing software has become more critical than ever, especially with the increasing regulatory requirements and compliance standards across the healthcare industry. Several credentialing software vendors have begun diverting away from enhancing their products, while others have begun eliminating their software entirely. If your credentialing software solution has decided to eliminate or support your needs, it is crucial to begin planning today.

Implementing a credentialing software system can bring numerous benefits to your organization, ranging from increased efficiency to enhanced security and compliance. The planning of implementing any software takes time and research especially a credentialing solution, as the transition can be complex and time-consuming. Staying up to date on your current supplier’s roadmap is essential for performance.

Here are some reasons why you should consider implementing credentialing software before your current system may no longer be supported or eliminated (sunsets):


  1. Prevent Disruptions in Credentialing Processes

Credentialing is a complex process that involves the collection and verification of numerous documents and data points. It is critical to have a streamlined and efficient process to ensure that providers and staff can be credentialed quickly and accurately. If your current software is planning on eliminating support or sunsetting the product entirely, there is a high likelihood of disruptions in the credentialing process, which can lead to delays, errors, and other issues. Implementing new software before the sunset date ensures that your processes remain uninterrupted, and your team can continue to perform their work without any hiccups.

  1. Ensure Compliance with Industry Standards
