Credentialing Office receives NCQA accreditation

September 18, 2018

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recently accredited Texas Children’s Hospital’s Centralized Credentialing Office.

The NCQA is a nonprofit organization in that works to improve health care quality through the administration of evidence-based standards, measures, programs, and accreditation. An NCQA accreditation is considered a best practice in the field of credentialing.

To earn the status, NCQA auditors performed a comprehensive evaluation of the Credentialing Office to determine if it met the organization’s standards of having a well-defined credentialing and re-credentialing process. The office demonstrated excellence with a near-perfect score of 99.6 percent.
